CA&E 458 Restoration News

Thee is reinstalling the overhead access panel with new fasteners in the north end of CA&E 458.  This work is in anticipation of the first coat of epoxy primer being applied any moment.

Chief Car Officer Jeff Bennett and steadfast right hand man Mike Giles took 458 for a test run just a few days ago. Quickly found one retriever was malfunctioning. Below you can see that when Jeff took it apart, the main “retrieve” spring had failed. Jeff was able to make repairs with parts on hand

Sneak peak,,, look at that shine

Told ya any moment. Here’s Kyle applying the epoxy primer to the south motorman’s compartment

Mike is masking and painting the last step well on 458
