New, Wider Large 700-ton Railway

The shipwrights at BBHS are busily working on widening and repairing the large 700-ton railway.  BBHS received a MARAD federal Small Shipyard grant in 2010 to improve the railway.  After the Liberator was launched in late June, the railway was open for major repairs.

The rebuilt/wider railway is expected to be finished by the end of August. Here is a preview of the upcoming improved railway.
