Work Day

Rarely is there only one project going on at Zube on a given work day. On Oct. 5, the beginnings of a big, new bridge involved many people pitching in as needed. Also the beginning of Phase IV with roadbed for mainline sidings and an industry commenced and out-of-state live steamers were welcomed.
