Railtown quietly marks two milestones!

March 3rd, 2010, marked the one-year anniversary of the Railtown blog.  We’ve had almost 30,000 page visits this year, and have enjoyed being able to share the activities of the historic Jamestown Shops with a wider audience.

On March 3rd of this year, we were busy with the hydrostatic testing of the Shay #2, in preparation for the operating season, which starts April 3rd!  One stay bolt needs to be replaced before operating, but otherwise, we got a clear bill-of-health from the Federal Railroad Association (FRA) inspector.
