The Train Depot's New Home...

We hope everyone is having a great weekend.  Rob cleaned house this morning (well Trisha helped some until it was time to go get a pedicure).  Then after a late lunch/early supper, we went to Concord to Pet Smart, Target, and then treated ourselves to Starbucks.  Not a bad way to spend a Saturday.  

Rob wanted to post a few more pictures from the Landis Train Depot move.  Of course, it was actually moved on his first day back from summer break, so while he missed the actual move, he did get some before and after pictures.

Here are just a few......

If you look close, you can see one of the
workmen digging out from underneath the
foundation of the depot.

Here's the truck hooked up to the depot, it is
nearly ready to move.  The chimneys
have to be removed first.

Here you can see workmen starting to deconstruct the
chimneys.  If you look closely, you can see a brick
flying through the air.
Here's the Depot, sited at it's new home.  It will have
a stone foundation, which will be built to look
as if the Depot had always been there.  Note:
Landis was still a passenger train
stop in the early 1960's.  Mail was
still delivered by train for a
few years later.
Click here to view a video from the Salisbury Post's website with some pictures of the actual move.  

Also, be sure to check our Upcoming Trips page.  We are planning to go camping on Labor Day weekend.  Until next time, stay safe out there....-R,T,&J
