A couple of Tuesday photos.

Ron Ginger and Eric Schade discuss details on the next steps for coach No. 9's interior.


Jerry and Carlos Steinke work on final preparations to install the wheel sets in the refurbished passenger car truck frames in the background.  They've spent many, many hours preparing the trucks for the coach.
What–me worry?

I took way too many pictures today. So here are some with no explanation needed..







Testing finishes



This is the exterior paint. Varnish is the shiny top part.









Ron was assembling frames for the screens for the clerestory windows





Eric is working on the mounts for the screens.
