While the museum was buzzing with Christmas events, the car barn has been packed with people working on 4451. November, December, and January have all proven very productive. The complete south end of the car has been stripped of paint and rotted metal. New metal has been installed, fitted, and finished in many areas. The sliding doors have been completely restored, as well as the end train door. Basically inside and out, the south end will be ready for primer by the end of the day!
