Cutting A Ditch

Jordan Spreader 35056 is seen cutting a deep ditch in an area that has always been prone to poor drainage. The new secret weapon being used this day is a "ditching blade" seen in the bottom right corner. This blade allows for a deeper cut for better drainage. it also profiles the ballast and right of way giving it the look of being a Class 1 railroad. Location is along Fillors Tree Farm, just South of the Cooperstown Dreams Park.
