CA&E 458

458 had the final coating of black wood penetrating wood epoxy during the week. Here you can see Mike and Thee working them up ladders to to Jeff and Fred B. on the roof.

Thee has made it up with yet another trolley plank board, while you can see Fred B. preparing the ventilation holes.

Jeff shooting a selfie while catching his breath from placing the boards in various positions on the top of the car.

Finished for the day! All three roof ventilators have been mounted and sealed by Fred B. The trolley plank boards have all been placed, cut and secured to the roof saddles, and the flanges for the trolley cable harness and roof mounted air horn are now all installed.

Basically the roof is ready for trolley bases, and to run the main power cables! Great day of progress. 

In the background off to the far left you can see John finishing up the roof rebuild on the east side of 316.
