The famous Oscar Meyer Weinermobile made an unexpected visit to IRM today, so that gave us the opportunity for some unique pictures.
Hope this makes you hungry for a delicious hot dog at Nick's, otherwise known as the Central Avenue Diner, the Salem Diner, or various other names, not all of them appropriate. But the food alone makes the drive out to IRM worthwhile!
And there's no cover charge here at Hicks Car Works for viewing our newly-installed manhole covers from the Chicago City Railway!
Most of the day I spent stripping paint from the 36. The North Shore cars in Barn 6 were switched around; the main purpose of all that work can only have been to provide better lighting for working on the 36 and photographing it when done. Thanks, guys!
