Rehabilitation project for the Quincy Mine Hoist Association (QMHA) (CE, CM, SU)

This multidisciplinary group was tasked with restoring the historical track alignments of the mine so that it may serve as a tourist attraction as well as a functional passenger railroad. The team conducted comprehensive topographic surveys, a redesign of the existing track and yard layout around the engine house, crossings between historic and present rail lines, a locomotive run around for maneuvering around passenger cars, and the design of several trestle bridges as part of the final deliverable.
