Ballast Cleaning

April 17, 2010

In April 2010, the Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum hired American Mobile Aggregate Crushing in Nappanee, Indiana to clean about 500 tons of ballast. The ballast was reclaimed from the old Erie right-of-way and will be used for various track projects around the museum. With some fancy equipment from AMAC and our own equipment, crews from HVRM assisted in moving hundreds of tons of the valuable rock.

Bob Jachim and Joe Kingsbury provided traffic control along Main Street while Dave Cook hauled load after load of the limestone ballast along the newly rebuilt passing track. Cory Bennett kept the museum's old loader humming along while loading the dump truck.
