The 1009 arrived at Ringoes from Flemington over the weekend as part of the Sunday freight consist. The two most critical restoration steps are to patch a leak in the roof at one spot and to replace the glazing in the windows. The present glazing is almost opaque. Beyond that we think its mostly attention to details, nothing significant mechanically (hope hope hope!).
