Weekend Report: Progress on Many Fronts!

Click on each picture for a closer look!
For a January day, Saturday turned out bright and sunny and felt like it was at least 18 degrees C. We had a great turnout of volunteers and much was accomplished. Now that we have finished our track construction, we undertook a major cleanup and reorganization of the machine shop area and now have a large clear area to work in. Progress was also made on the ongoing renovation of the TH&B caboose and inside the F7 diesel cab.
The driving instructor's seat for the Sweet Creek tender was completed and painted black so it almost disappears from view. It quite comfortable with a properly padded seat. The whole assembly has been built as a lift-off unit to allow fast access to the fuel filler cap below. We also painted the miniature railway turntable and the F7 cab doors.
Earlier in the day we had a visit from Gary, the last operator of the Pyke crane for the Toronto Terminal railways (TTR). We had a great chat and took extensive notes on the controls and idiosyncrasies of the crane.
