7/21/16 PROGRESS UPDATE.

BUNK CAR

Last week we finished installing air brake piping, painting the second truck, adding oil and pads to the journal boxes, and installed another window. We had trouble installing the other door and a door lock. We cancelled moving the car to Silverton because of too many details to work on, including most lettering and restoring the second door.

We will have a work session at Scott Gibbs’ place Fri , Jul 22, starting at 9.00am, to install a door, door locks, and sheet metal behind the stove and continue lettering. If you are in the area and want to lend a hand please CONTACT us

FLANGER

Last week we installed the two deck edge boards and much of the missing air brake piping

We will have a work session on Thu, Jul 21, starting at 9.30am, to replace a broken safety board along a back deck edge, finish restoring piping to its original configuration, sand the handrails and top structures, then paint them and the trucks.

OIL SHED

Last week we poured the concrete stem walls and removed the forms.

July 14. Joe Weigman, Jerry Hoffer, Ron Schlueter, and Judy Schlueter (taking the picture) removed forms from the oil shed foundation. In the background George Niederauer and Duane Danielson are working on the flanger. July 14.
