Timber Wolf Construction (WOF)

Keeping with the theme on current WOF projects...
"something is missing here"

The ENTIRE helix on Timber Wolf has been removed.

Yeah, looks a little different doesn't it.

Yep.  Looks strange from this angle too.

So how much longer will these trains operate on Timber Wolf?
My guess is not much longer.

So this is the area where the helix used to be.  Yeah, it's completely gone.  No rubble left to clear, just a few footers here and there.

On the left of this photo you can see where the track ends.  This is as far as GCI had progressed on the retrack/reprofile thus far.

It will be interesting to see if they rebuild the entire helix as it was before or if they decide to go in a different direction.
