Here is what the interior of the Duncan Tavern will look like when the remodeling is finished.

According to BGRM, work has also continued connecting the locomotive barn switches to the existing sidetrack, leveling it with ballast rock and connecting the rails. Once this is completed, the track will be
extended to enter the south side of the building.
