    They were working this weekend on Saturday. I saw Mississippi working on the new operators shack at the top. So at this point they have all the new towers installed with the hardware, top and bottom stations are complete, The shack is almost complete and it looks like they strung the Power or communications cable up the tower line. Now they just need the ramp at the top, cable and chairs and the controls. Also I noticed that all of the mechanical for the lift is at the top. The bottom is just a simple bull wheel.

    That is the way the old lift was also. Out west there are many lifts with the drive at the top instead of the bottom. I would think it would be more expensive to run the power up to the top but is there some physics that make a top drive more efficient?

    The grading at the bottom is pretty much done. If you go back to page 312 of this thread there are some pretty good pics. Basically the slope at the exit of Out to lunch coming from behind Rice brook at the bridge has not changed at all. At the bottom of the lift they built a big retaining wall to level of the area so they can have a flat lift line area. This is at the lower bridge below Gadd Brook.

    It's how you set up your view. I do not have that many posts per page. So you will see the pics probably 1 or 2 pages back.

    Mine must be setup like Hawk. This page is 316 and the pics Hawk is referring to are indeed on 312 for me.
