Time to Remodel the Hornsveld Trestle
The Hornsveld Trestle is over 30 years old and is in need of repairs.
The Board closed the trestle until it can be made safe.
A survey was done and a preliminary cost estimate was produced based
on remodeling the deteriorated elements.

OCME has begun a fundraising campaign and all donations are greatly
appreciated. Please click "Donate" below to contribute.

When rail panels are replaced on the layout, the rail is separated from the
ties and divided into "Reuse" and "Scrap" piles. Click pictures to enlarge.
1. The "Reuse" rail is stacked next to the green shed beside the completed
