First Rail Delivery

 

In the blistering cold the evening of November 11, the first of two shipments of rail arrived to its new home on the North Metro Rail Line. The rail was manufactured in Pueblo and arrived via train; welded in 1,600 foot strings. Crew members immediately began torch cutting a single hole in one end of each rail string to attach a shackle that pulled the string approximately 850 feet off the train into a triangle threader. Next, welders torched through the rail at mid-point and guided it to its permanent storage location along the rail bed. This process was repeated for approximately 16 hours until the train was completely unloaded. The second shipment of rail is currently being loaded onto a train in Pueblo and is due here in early December. A small portion of that shipment will be stored at 72nd Avenue, but the majority of it will be stored at 112th Avenue.
