  • ts-sculptureTrain Station – Inbound Shelters. Due to the cold weather, exterior work has stalled.
    A planned sculpture made of recycled railroad track iron rails will be installed long the east wall of the main shelter. On Friday afternoon, the Village, Legat Architects and the John Burns Construction visited the warehouse where these rails will be purchased. The chosen rails and the design schematics for the sculpture are pictured to the right.
