Railroad Maintainence

This was the scene in front of our house yesterday afternoon. They are replacing the cross ties on the tracks.

What a cool unschooling experience. It’s like having the Field Trip brought to us!

Here’s a LINK that I found that explains a little bit about the different machines & what exactly they are doing. Pretty cool how it all works.

Also I found some Youtube videos. This one showing how the old ties are removed. And inserting the new ones.
