Finally;
Outside the engine house is about 500' of track for #3 to play on when she is steamed up from time to time:

The Puhi mill site is now a trucking yard and access is only by invitation.
The shop has several pieces of equipment including a wheel lathe:

Outside is a truck that replaced the trains back in the 1950's. Scott says they wanted to restore it for operation, but the damp climate has seriously rusted the frame so it will eventually be a cosmetic restoration:

That's if nature doesn't take over first...


For those desiring more info on the locomotives follow this link:
Grove Farm Locomotives


I again thank Scott Johnson for his exceptional treatment of a visitor. All told he gave up over 3 hours of his time over two days to show me around. I hope to get back some day for one of their steam up events.
I'll post more later on other narrow gauge remnants on Kauai..
