The TLE&W recently had a devastating vandalism to our three open window MU cars we have decided to restore and save all three cars instead of scrapping them or retiring. The biggest issue we face is replacing the wicker seats. If you know anything about these cars you probably know we have two different styles which means two of our cars have the split seating with two sizes of seats and one car with the equally sized seats.
The bastards stole our seat bottoms, and that's it. We are currently looking for seat bottoms.
Could someone point me to specific groups that might be able to help us? We actually have a whole car worth of Budd RDC seating to trade if needed. Pass the word and help us out. Thanks and call, Matthew @ 304 421 4739
