The track must be carefully leveled by judicious use of the tampers.  It is a manual process and quite time-consuming.  Tons of crushed granite ballast support the track panels and lock them in place.  We are now using our third twenty ton purchase of ballast--all moved by hand!

Ted drives the yard goat locomotive to deliver a train load of ballast.  Jim and Charles spread and tamp the ballast.
