Ah-yup.

The Summer of Seventy volunteer 'gandy-dancers' sure as hell earned their keep:

I'm pretty sure these first two were taken when the kink in the photo posted previously was being repaired:

That's Ernie Robart at the far left, and Terry Ross next to him; the blond youngster is Terry's son.  Hopefully one of our regulars here can identify the others.

This third one was taken about two weeks later.  I think this is just above the second crossing, since the grade for the new road is to the left (uphill from the track) and a bit of the old road shows to the right:
