Facebook reminded me this morning about the state of the railroad, five years ago.
Progress as of 17 January, 2012. Furring strips in, wall insulation going in, extra lighting in, no grid yet for the drop ceiling.
Much of the work over the next four years was to build from the northwest corner to the east and to the south. By 12 January, 2016, the benchwork for staging and the trackage down to staging and up to the Gloucester Branch was in place, and spline for the upper level was going in through western Russian town of Zudnokhovsk.
Main line, station siding, and spur to corrective labor camp in place at Zudnokhovsk now. Stalin never had beer delivery like this! Passenger train headed off the Eastern Route Main Line into staging for Ipswich, Portsmouth, and points north.
