Photo of temporary switch. Old Getwell is seen on top left of photo.

Looking north at Getwell control point.

New signals at Getwell. They were activated at this time.

Tagged rail.

I switched to east side of R.O.W. for this shot. FYI, I drove across bridge to get to the location. No trespassing across tracks.

Switch stand of temporary switch. Chainlink fence is new.

I used my Canon 400mm lense to get this shot. Abutment and pier is New Getwell Road overpass. Switch is for the brick yard spur. New bridge over Winchester can be seen here.

North bound train is seen meeting a SB CSX train and then passing under New Getwell Road.

Compromise joint which needs a lot of work for the temporary switch.

View looking north from New Getwell Overpass. Temporary switch is clearly seen here with concrete ties. The plan is to merge the NB main into the new track and the SB main into the NB main. Basically, shifting one track to the right (east).

View from Homewood Street, temporarly closed for track work. New Getwell Road overpass is seen as well as new bridge over Winchester. You're looking north.

A low angle shot. Note the signals at Getwell Control Point.

Another view looking south. The Konecranes can be seen as well as the new signal at North IMF.

View from New Getwell looking south. The new bridge over Winchester and the old ones are clearly seen here. Note how all three tracks jog to go over the bridges. The 400mm lens was used here. Lamar is seen in the distance. Then the BNSF autorack train is seen crossing the bridge over Winchester, the jog in track is evidenced by the autoracks. The train is last seen about to duck under New Getwell Road. Grading for brick yard spur is about complete.

View from Homewood looking south. Ballasting is complete.

Looking north at ballasted new track.

This will soon be a thing of the past as the mainlines will soon switch alignment. This will be the new IMF Lead.

View looking south of ballasted track. The track crews do a nice job! Brick yard spur has track placed and chainlink fence is being installed for it. Photos taken from New Getwell Road overpass.

View from Getwell CP. Old Getwell Road is seen in this west view. Note the chain link fence being installed.

View looking north. Chainlink fence is new.

CN Power on the new main line going home. RJ Corman is switching on their line. The view is from Delp Street with Lamar overpass in background. In the second view, note stub rails. This was the old SB main. The realignments are not finished. The north end is cut off too! making it an orphaned track...but not for long.

Sept. 5, 2009

View from Delp Street looking south. Lamar overpass in foreground. The mainlines have been shifted one track to the left.

Looking west toward Delp Street. The stub ended track is the IMF lead. Some work is still left on this end.

Another view of Delp Street crossing. This crossing will NOT reopen.

This view shows how the former SB main was dragged to the left to become the IMF Lead.

Looking south, the NS transfer sits. The brick yard spur appears to be completed including a bumper.
