Yours truly in my finest construction touring gear (photo by Carlos Banchik).
The square hole to the left is where the switch pin locks the beam into place.
The switch beam rolls on some heavy-duty hardware!
Looking down the spur line from the switch. The emergency walkway is on the left.
The first electric rail has been installed.
And we leave you with a pretty sunset shot. Note the artsy accent lines added to the supports. Sure will look pretty with those M-VI trains running down the line!
