A Visit to St. Louis

David writes....

I was back in Salt Lake City for all of a day and a half before I departed for Missouri. We are visiting the in-laws. 

On Thursday, we visited the Museum of Transportation to say hello to my old volunteer group. 

Here is my daughter, Lexie by St. Louis Public Service 1743, a PCC car. I helped with the car's restoration before the move. 

MOT is a great place for children!

Now that the museum has been non-profit again for 9 months; do you have any comments
about their doings?

Visit was only about an hour and a half long, so I didn't get so see much. It appears that things haven't really changed that much. Volunteers were working on the B&O Davis Camel 4-6-0 locomotive, but I forgot to snap a pic of it. Loco is painted, wood cab is reconstructed. The remains of the wood tender frame were outside, so I imagine that's where work will focus next.
