We point out the many advantages of building track offsite and trucking it in,
but seeing it happen is always impressive.
The first beam of the dual guideway "revenue" section is in place!
Note that the wood platform is temporary for construction.
If you go to Las Vegas in the next year or so, set aside some time to watch the process.
Will you be riding on these beams in 2004?
Need we say more?
No beams at the beginning of the week, 14 in place by week's end. Any questions?
