Some more winter work on 316

February 25, 2024 8:53 PM | Jacob Goldberg (Administrator)

The car barn continues to buzz with activity through the winter, with a lot of work going on to restore Chicago Aurora & Elgin car 316.

Kathleen and James cut wire conduit to wire up the new heating strips

The new heater strips and the replacement conduit and wiring that Jeff has been working to install to replace the old wiring so the car can have safe heating

The passenger windows have been replaced and are carefully being fitted into place after the exterior belt rail and interior windowsills have been replaced

A lot of work has also been going on under the car, but that will have to wait for another post. Stay tuned!

Also, we will have our first event of the year starting in just three weeks: the Bunny Burrow Express! Stop on by for a trip to the Easter Bunny's secret burrow, an Easter egg hunt, and a visit from the Easter Bunny!
