Time Traveler Construction

This week's update is courtesy of sandunerider.
One thing you will notice is that not a lot of progress was made since our last update due to the record-breaking rain the entire state of Missouri has received this past week. 

Progress has been made though, they are working to close up the lower sections of the station now.

This is really the only part of the entire building that is still open.

You can see that the other portion of the building is now closed up.

Now on the other side of the building, you can see that they have done a lot of progress on framing up this side of the load station.
The other side of the building is completely closed up now.

Looks like we have a random opening on the other side of the building.  Not sure if this is a window or what.

Siding installation has really progressed on the station portion of the building.

They just started on the paneling last week and they are already to the top on this side.

The paneling has started on the other side of the building too.

I am guessing that this cherry picker is being used for the paneling installation.

The trees have filled in so photos of the footers are going to be difficult from here on out.

But you can definitely tell that some large scale work is still being done.

Until next time.
Thanks again to sanddunerider for this week's update.

Branson Coaster (Branson Sawmill)

Thanks to sandunerider we have new construction photos of the Branson Coaster.

This is the final lift hill of the layout.

The bottom of the final lift

This is the main control booth for the lifts at the bottom of the hill.

This is the bottom of the lift in the middle of the course.

The top of the lift hill in the middle of the course.

Here is the "split" where the tracks head to the different lift hills at the bottom of the hill.

This is the helix that occurs right out of the station.

Still a lot of work to do on the station area.

The new coaster is scheduled to open this summer.
Thanks again to sandunerider for the update

Parking Lot Expansion (SDC)

SDC is expanding the parking lot again.

Time Traveler Construction (SDC)

We got some better pictures of the station from Sunday.  One thing I want to point out is the two openings that everyone has been saying will be the maintenance bays.

There is now a very large steel beam across those openings.

With that new beam in place, I think the original theory of a elevator style transfer track in the main loading area is looking more likely.

Let's be honest.  There is A LOT of room under the load station.

In other news, the entire building pretty much has all of its flats installed now.

Time Traveler Construction (SDC)

This week's update on the project shows how mysterious poles have popped up on this side of the building.  Will this side have a facade applied to it that extends above the roofline?

Additionally, wooden panel siding has started to be applied to the north side of the building.  You can see it towards the bottom.
