Building Street Track

(Photos taken in June 1985 by Tom Burke)

Photos 1-3 show trackwork on Kingsbury St. just north of North Avenue from June of 1985. The cutaway shots show the layered technique with street trackage. Shots 4-5, also from June of 1985, show temporary track in place while the permanent tracks were being linked together and finished. Both 4 & 5 look north along Kingsbury with the Finkl spur and the remains of the one-time Strawberry line to the left and the main line (by then really a long spur) up to Peerless on the right in the background.
