Since painting in the main compartment of the 36 is essentially finished, at least for now, work started to shift to the #1 vestibule. But first, I opened all of the little ventilator chutes, sanded the sides, and painted them with primer. When I have car lighting available, I'll get out the ceiling paint and finish the little doors and do any touch-up required.
And then it was on to stripping and painting in the vestibule.
Out in front of Barn 4, Max, Joel, and others were planting new poles to improve the overhead.
Bob Olson shows us the new control panel at the east end of the Spaulding control point. This really looks nice.
And the signal crew (Bob, Mike Alterio, and John Naglich) were testing the new crossing gates, and were proud to show them off. It was a grey day, so the lighting isn't great, but I think you can see all the flashing lights.
