Zack got the last of the bituthene on yesterday and says as soon as his metal guy can, he will get to it. But it is waterproof, should it need to be out.

Allan Fisher asked me to post this picture of B&SR Boxcar 67 taken in 1938.

Was the roof covered with tar paper or tin originally? The early pictures it is hard to tell, some places look like tar paper and the ends look like tin.

One truck will be removed and have brake rigging hooked up. The work on the truck will take place sometime this summer or fall while we are waiting for the roofer.

The rest of the brakes on the box car will be mounted after the tin roof is installed.

Wood roof walks will be installed.

A few handholds need mounting on top of the box car. 

The brake wheel with it's long shaft can than be mounted.

67 still need the safety chains installed on each end.

Linkage between cut levers and couplet's need to be installed
