OK, maybe that's an exaggeration. It was certainly cold today, and we can tend to forget what winter can be like around here. But the driving was OK, so there were lots of people out at IRM today working in the nice heated shop, where it's just delightful.
I continued work on stripping and repainting vestibule parts for the 319.
Buzz is making new doors for the depot.
And Tim is making new doors for CRT 1754. In this picture, of course, new framing pieces are holding the old quarter panels.
These doors form a 3-D jigsaw puzzle.
Here's the first of the new window frames for the 150, in the open position. The front of this single-ended car is to the left in this view. Also, Tim gave me some surplus pieces of glass so I can teach myself how to etch glass. As you can see, if the glass isn't etched you'd never know it's there.
And I spent a lot of time stripping and sanding various surfaces in the 319, but not many pictures.
And then Henry was working on disassembling a deteriorated door for one of the North Shore MD cars.
Various other projects were in progress, but we always have room for more helpers.
And you can be sure that if you help out, Santa Kallaus will take note. He's making a list.
