Thee is applying the first coat of canvas paint to CA&E Car 458's roof canvas.

Fred Lonnes is installing a derail device on to the most used barn lead to provide and extra layer of safety for volunteers inside.

Connor Ladley is working on sanding one of dozens of window ratchet boards. He ended up getting them all done after several hours

Yes I think that I see Fred L smiling! He is obviously pleased with the paint work transpiring in 458. Being Fred is the main project consultant/manager on this restoration, we lean quite heavily on him for knowledge and assistanceā€¦. Mike is standing by waiting for Jeff to make a messā€¦ lol

Joe C is restoring the ceiling mounted mahogany bases for the ceiling dome lights in 316

Joe, Tom, and John and all working different stations to keep cranking out panels for 316. Stripping, sanding, repairing, and cleaning each on is a massive undertaking. Good thing we have so many helping hands!
