Weekend Report: Steady Progress on the F7 Cab, Caboose & Depot

Click on each picture for a closer look!
A crew of eleven volunteers worked on many different projects on Saturday. Work continued on the F7 diesel cab as shown in the images above. Joshua, our newest volunteer, applied test paint patches to the CP #7020 using a multi-mark red colour, to the Pyke crane using a yellow colourand to the TH&B #70 caboose for a second test of the red colour and a second test of yellow colour. Inside the caboose, five of our volunteers continued to work on the caboose finishing the tongue and groove covering on the left wall and began work on the right wall. As shown in the middle image of the caboose interior, we carefully reinstalled the boards with the Christmas message we discovered last year and which was featured in a Christmas posting here.
On Sunday, Michael Guy led an expedition to visit the Golden Horseshoe Live Steamers in Hamilton, Ontario on the occasion of their monthly meeting. At that meeting, Michael, Arno and I delivered a slide show presentation on the development of the TRHC miniature railway facility. At the end of the presentation, we solicited their support in providing additional equipment and manpower to help us entertain what we expect will be very large crowds of visitors on our opening weekend on May 29th and 30th. We also took the opportunity to repatriate the remaining two of our four passenger riding cars which were being tested and stored at the GHLS track.
