I understood that Coach 9 was going to Bay 4, the woodshop.
Yup….since last I knew it has been in Bay 3 all along….

Opps! Off by one….darned dyslexia!

Boxcar 56 is in bay 3 and will remain until complete.  Coach 9 has been in shop bay 2 and will move to bay 4 indefinitely.  As they move into finer interior work, being near the wood working tools in bay 4 will be helpful.

9 and 10 will move into bay 2 for now, where some preparatory work will occur on no 10, and no 9 will be housed for the duration of February Steam & Sleighs operations.  Bay 1 will host the rail car and locomotive 7.

Following S&S, loco 7 will be winterized and placed back in the car barn.  9 will move to bay 1, with the half bay in bay 2 available to get a start on loco 11’s frame, as well as permit the loco 10 project to spread out a little.

Once box 56 is done, 10 will likely move there- giving each 10 and 11 a full bay.

Once the enginehouse is complete, 9 and the rail car will move there, permitting bay 1 to be used for Wilmer and similar projects. 

At least that’s the current outlook..

Thanks
Jason

Hello,
I think all may enjoy the recent posts about the SR&CL that has been on a new we page for a few months. The line is still running and working to keep ahead of decay and decline. This will take you to the home page. Click on "Updates" to see the latest news and photos.

These sort of photos used to be sent around on a private email list, but now are available to all. Enjoy!

One reason is so that MNG 7 can be moved into the shop so that it's in a heated space for Steam & Sleigh operations in February.

I don't know that Coach 9 will be getting exterior paint right away.  I think they'll be working on the interior of the car quite a bit in the next few months.
