Weekend Report: Progress on the U33C Cab & the Passenger Cars

Click on each image for a closer look!
This past Sunday, a small crew of volunteers turned out to work on the U33C Cab and to clean the grab irons which had been removed from the passenger cars. When the roofs of the passenger cars had been tarred, many of the grab irons had been tarred too. The cleaning of these grab irons is a lengthy task and many tools were tried to find the most productive way of doing it.
On the U33C Cab, we completed the fitting of the window frames and the rubber seals and then tackled the fitting of a "sacrificial" plexiglass window made up of two 1/8" plexiglass sheets. We use the window as a template which we test fitted into each of the three unfinished windows in the U33C. As we wrapped up the work session, we couldn't resist popping the sacrificial window sheets into the front window frames so we could peer through them!
