CA&E Car 316 /Restoration News Updates

August 21, 2022 11:06 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Latest on the restoration of Chicago Aurora & Elgin car 316 from the Allan C Williams barn.

Here we have Joe C and Mike pounding away at the south end rebuild of 316.   Notice the splicing of new wood into the original wood - just like the old Wheaton Shops of the CA&E

Those air tanks for the air brake system on 316, that were measured back a couple of months ago are expected to be in soon.  So Mr. Fred Biederman can be seen here torching off the old tanks.

And success! Fred was able to cut them and lower them with Jeff’s help. Now just gotta get Fred out!
