Mexican Canyon Trestle

Pictures taken September 16, 2009

The major task for this day was to put the top section on Bent #10 , to place braces between Bent #9 and Bent #10, and (possibly) to replace the bad mid-sill in Bent #11.

This is how it looked when I arrived. For those of you with good eyes, and the ability to distinguish old wood (light) from new wood (dark), there is a puzzle. Bent #10 has braces to Bent #11, but not to Bent #9.


The crane is moving a pre-cut brace.
