4451... an "OPEN CAR" ????

The striping of the roof of 4451, led us to find that all the carline wood is rotted. We further realized that the ceiling is/was all screwed to the wood, and not the metal parts of the carlines. We can see where this is going.... So out with the ceiling. All the fixtures were removed and carefully packed. Then all the panels removed. The panels will be blasted and painted out of the car, (which they needed severe paint service anyway) while the carlines are being replaced.

Maybe we just take the roof off completely and make it an open air car????
