Construction underway for an extension of the Heber Valley Railroad's shops in Utah.

HEBER CITY, Utah — The Heber Valley Railroad broke ground this week on a 30,000-square-foot addition to its shop building that will enable the Utah tourist railroad to protect additional equipment from the elements.

Chief Mechanical Officer Michael Manwiller tells Trains that the addition to the shop will feature five tracks and one stall for motor vehicles. Each stall will be 300 feet long and the building will be able to shelter 15 passenger cars and serve as a parts warehouse.

“The building is designed to provide safe and heated storage for the railroad’s steam locomotives and growing passenger car fleet,” Manwiller says.

The new addition has been the result of two years of planning and design work. Manwiller says they hope to have it done by the end of April or May.
