Weekend Report: Saturday saw the U33C Cab Assembled into One Unit!
Click on each image for a closer look!
We had a grand day on Saturday with only a little light rain to dampen the proceedings. It was a long day too. Some of us didn't arrive home until mid-evening. Here is a partial list of what happened today:
- The TH&B caboose had more new wood, care and paint lavished on it
- Much clean-up of the stalls and service pits occurred
- The Pyke has fresh aluminum paint applied to the intakes and exhausts up on top
- Over in the mini depot, the little Romulus steam loco underwent further boiler maintenance followed by a late day test steam-up that went well.
Break time was greatly enhanced due to the mother of one of our greatest young enthusiasts, Bennett, once again bringing down a brace of coffee cakes!
All of the images today are of the day-long project to assemble the U33C Cab. The group picture at the lower right captures most of the crew remaining at the end of day. Our thanks for a great day's effort to them and the other volunteers who had to leave earlier.
