Eric and Ron have been busy.  Here's a couple of photos of their work on the platform extension at the south end of the frame.


What–me worry?

That funny  and nifty video of course reminds me of the Mack Sennet ,Charlie Chaplin ,and Laurel and Hardy movies I enjoyed watching when I was a kid but  first and foremost it proves that the dedicated and skillful  WW&F volunteers in charge of the project work fast and efficiently.

What are the 1"x4" pieces next to the sills for? I would think they would be a water trap and cause the sill to rot.

I think when this one comes together we (museum), are going to want another 2 or 3.  Better get those production lines ready Harold.  :)

Are the top plates just temporary, as I thought the hood beams were continuous with the carbody?
