Thank you Garrett!
Garrett Pearson completed his Eagle Scout project and kicked off a outdoor project for the museum on Saturday. He removed the grass that had covered some of the rail leading to our rail repair building and added rock between the rails.
The finished project looks fantastic, but it has much more than aesthetic value. Over the years, grass and dirt have slowly covered up some of the railway in the old depot. Preserving the rails that are original to the depot is an important part of keeping the history of the Tooele Valley Railway alive. We plan to continue to pull away grass and fill in the old rails to keep them above ground so visitors can see and follow the tracks.
