Remedial Work on the Fowler Box Car Door
Today at the roundhouse a TRHA restoration team lifted one of the doors from the Fowler boxcar for a little remedial woodwork. The middle photo shows the back of the door, generally in good shape except for the lower edge where the bolts for the steel guide shoe have rusted away and the wood has deteriorated. The righthand photo shows the two cast-iron roller brackets at the top of the door which carry a patent date of 4-30-1912.
