This past Saturday a new member was welcomed to the crew of volunteers
purchase of a rare find was approved and finalized a New Haven letter board and a number board (these will be used as a template to restore the exterior graphics and lettering) still too early to decide if they will be used on the cars or put on display
Also some more work progressed on cleaning out the interiors and work began on the exteriors.
So far testing of several different solutions to remove the staining from the stainless steel was tested and we seem to have a winner.
Several spots of graffiti were washed off and electricity ran out to the worksite to provide power for tools, lamps, etc...
Soon we hope to begin work on preparing the roof to be worked on to seal any leaks, clean up the pantographs as well as prepping the surface for priming and painting
also on a different note, these particular cars did serve metro north in wire train service so were thus operated by
*drum roll*.......................... Metro North!!!
This is the train to: Pumphouse, Turntable and RPO, Please have all tickets out for collection. Thank you and enjoy the ride
