Rare Arnott's biscuit van restored
IRM's long awaited Model Railroad and Pullman Archives building has begun construction. Yes, we finally broke ground about three weeks ago and already the contractors are pouring concrete and installing foundation forms for the new building. The size is quite impressive with having a footprint of 100 by 135 or 13,500 square feet of space. I hope to give you more data as the building progresses. As for the Buildings and Grounds Manager, Dave Diamond, he is at the site every day making sure all the details of construction are followed. Here are the first pictures of the exciting new building. Our contractor is preparing the ground for construction on a very cloudy day. The concrete footings are already poured and now the foundation forms are being assembled into place. Another view of the buildings large footprint. More forms installed. Now just waiting for the concrete to pour. The concrete arrives just in time for the pour. This is the foundation for the center steel support beams. Yes, that is Dave Diamond viewing the pouring of the foundation support centers.All this construction is made possible by your donations to the museums newest building. Please consider supporting this project by donating to the Model RR Building construction! Thanks Roger
