Latest on the Armstrong Turntable at CERRM

Looking towards the painted interior. Only the last `cell' and the outrigger framework remain to be painted at this end.

Progress is continuing at the Ct Eastern RR Museum, for finishing of the Turntable. As can be seen in this group of photos, the table is being painted gloss black inside and out by our volunteers, the timbers are being notched, and final preparations are being made to mount the ring rail.

Since this bridge is not original to the site, it was originally installed in Dudley MA on the B&A, the bridge had to be modified slightly due to it being longer then the pit was wide and the ring rail will be mounted on leveling compound instead of ties. Luckily for the museum the bridge had 4 inch long extensions at the end of the bridge, when these were removed and capped off the bridge fit the pit. Unfortunately the ends of the bridge are deeper then the original bridge so we are unable to use wood ties under the ring rail, so we will be bolting it directly the brownstone and Leveling Epoxy will be used to support the ring rail.
