I was able to make it to IRM for a few hours Sunday afternoon. When I arrived there was a gang of department volunteers working on the annual inspection for the 144, our CSL "Old Pullman." Just like West Shops! Joel, Greg, Richard, Thomas, and Jeron were all contributing to this. It took a bit of time to iron out some minor issues with the car but by the end of the afternoon it was completed and ready for service.
By this time the car shop guys were switching the 144 back over to Barn 7 and pulled out the 3142 to put the Pullman in behind it. I caught the below vignette. There's no better place for a CSL fan!
There were other projects being worked on too. Ed was over in the Electroliner and Norm and Jeff were doing steel work on Michigan 28. There were also guys from the Coach Department and Track Department who were out working, plus possibly more people that I didn't see. There's never a shortage of activity.
