CA&E 316 Update

March 20, 2022 9:27 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

While on top of CTA L Car 4288, helping to canvas CA&E 458, Chief Car Officer Jeff Bennett gets a birds eye view of Joe C. removing the outer, upper paneling on CA&E 316, where we be reinstalling the original stained glass arch windows!

Joe C. test fitting one of the arch windows… Visualize how magnificent this car will look, sporting its original stained glass, inside and out!

Kathleen is learning how to use the infrared stripping gun from Thee.

As you can see, Kathleen is very impressed with the results of removing paint this way!

Somehow Mike G. Fred B. Fred L. and Manny hid well from the camera this weekend. But fear not, they were all busy bees!

Mike could barely keep up with the messes that Jeff was making. 

Manny was doing so well with paint removal, he took some arm rests home to do there!

Fred B. assisted with canvas work, and took home a sample of a roof saddle from 458 to make more of them at home,

Fred L. spent some time diagnosing 4451, as it developed some control circuit gremlins.
