Most of the ' work . thus far .has been' in removing the surface at the point where it was decided to open a new quarry, and this has been slow of "necessity. It has involved the removal of trees and vegetable growth and . cut ting through the top layer of granite in order "to get an opening into the moun tain.. From 40 to 50 carloads of surface granite has been supplied to the Central Vermont railroad for rip-rap work on the railroad where it crosses the Hunt meadow.
