No. 56 will be using the trucks that has been under B&SR flatcar No. 34.  The two trucks were brought into shop bay 3 yesterday, December 30th, for installation in January, as described here.
What–me worry?

I think that it is great to see the #56 getting a pair of freight car trucks at last. Thank you to
all who worked so long and hard to bring this car back to life! I just re-read the whole story; it is amazing to see so much new wood and old iron going into that Laconia box car. Happy New Year 2024!

Jay Wylie and Marcel Levesque were busy today (Saturday, January 20th) forming brackets to hold the coupler cut levers for No. 56.  Note the completed brackets on the table to the left of the vise.

What–me worry?
