Yes. If you zoom in, you can see an arch just behind the Trafohaus. Looks like there are forms up there and lots of bracing.
I guess the Trafo haus is not long for this world, or will be moved. I don't know if that's the kind of building they'd try to save, or not.
That camera is pretty cool though!

All the spiderwork stuff appears to be conveyor supports, I take it for spoil removal.

Hi All,

Well I'm having a hard time typing this I'm so excited by the latest developments at Preda. I was wondering what the conveyor system was for since it didn't make sense for tunnel muck removal because of the location of the pit, and today I see they are using it to offload hopper cars! So I'm guessing they are offloading concrete aggregates for use in the onsite batch plant, but maybe HJ will be able to update us on it if he goes there. What a combination...aggregates, hopper cars, conveyors...ahhh.... =p~ :))

I'm not sure you can see the content on this link without a Facebook account, but it states that the preparation work on the northern portal is completed and the excavation work is ready to start :) There's a great shot of the new portal too :)

Its so fascinating looking at the Preda webcam regularly. You can see trains being unloaded, structures erected and generally things changing on a daily basis. Quite often the materials train comes up from Samedan powered by one or two of the Ge 4/4 1s.

Thanks for clearing that up Peter, I was wondering where the materials were coming from. It looks to me like they are bringing in concrete sand by hopper car, then plan on using the excavated tunnel rock to make the coarse portion of the concrete aggregate mix by crushing & washing. Any surplus I guess they will place into berms near Preda or use for something else like rail ballast or subballast. It sure is fun to watch!

Well, we ignored all that hoopla and started walking to Bergün. :ymdevil: :ymdevil: No, I'm not kidding. I ignored most of that "new and improved" stuff and sought out that which would have been around in '69 through '75.

On that theme, I shot very little around Zürich. Every which way one turned there was a &#$^% construction crane in the picture. Drove me nuts! X( X(

2 x Ge4/4I's still there at 1513 local time.

Note to admin: could you put this thread with the Filisur web cam sticky so they are side by side?

Thanks

Believe it or not I actually did that before I read the latest post. :-s :-s Changed it to a Sticky, then read the post and moved it to the Village Fountain. Now that worries me. :-? :-?

Looking at today's (March 29th 2016) pictures it seems they have set up a spoil train from Spinas as a push-pull set. See pictures at 10:00 and 12:00

Interesting that they're using the side dumps now. I think it might be washed concrete sand they're bringing in though, and not spoil. Is there an aggregate source at Spinas?
