        Hi Mark,

        Good News!! Finally the tree trimming at the Horseshoe Curve has begun. The loggers started today. They are currently working on the one viewing window on the right side of the curve.

        From what I understand...the whole project will take between 4-6 weeks with large viewing windows on both sides and alot of center trees and brush removed. I sure hope the railfans come up this summer and see the work in progress.

          G'day Mark L,

          Thanks for the link to such a great site. As a PRR fan down under I don't get to see much of the area, so directions to sites like these are much appreciated.

          Belpaires Rule!!
