2004 was a busy year on the Arizona and Pacific Railroad.
Major projects included re-landscaping the front yard, construction of a water tank,
continued restoration work on the "Sandusky" (S-16 #60-1880), and preparation for
the early 2005 move of the car barn to its new location.
The front yard which had been flat and unassuming was redeveloped with several tons
of dirt, many large boulders, half a dozen trees, two grass areas
with underground sprinklers and extruded concrete curbing, landscape lighting,
more than 40 new plants, and several rock walls. The track which had been only slightly recessed
before now traverses through two cuts held back from the rails by low block walls.
