Ongoing progress on a number of other fronts!

In addition to the busy Saturday work sessions, volunteers often assemble at the Roundhouse and elsewhere to tackle a number of other opportunities to further our projects.

At the above left, we see the enhanced lighting around Don Station allowing it to hold its own at night in the company of the well-lit Cabin D and its tool shed. At the above right, a team of three moved an antique flat-belt drive drill press last Monday from Union Station to our machine shop. There are a number of historic artefacts stored in Union Station that will be recovered in the near future for our museum as Union Station begins going through its own restoration process.
Below we find our LRC field team at work again last Sunday to continue cannibalizing LRC #6919 for parts with which to restore our LRC #6917. For examples, while our LRC #6917 was in the best shape for restoration, some of the glass in the windows was cracked. We recovered some complete window assemblies from #6919 which will make authentic replacement easy! Click here for our earlier TRHA news report on the salvage effort.
