Update: Restoration of the Cape Race
We now expect that we will not need to move out steam engine #6213 into the three stalls for maintenance until later in 2014 so we have taken the opportunity to continue to work on the restoration of the Cape Race. We have decided not to use the plastic wrap approach to repainting the exterior of the car. So we have removed the test wrapping pieces and are now experimenting with approaches to painting the car using a roller and paint brush with promising results.
