Question: What are the truss rods that are outside lying against the west wall of the shop building? Thanks!

56 as of last week. Repair of the wall framing is the next step I believe.

I'm glad to see Marcel is back at it on the boxcar.

has any thought been given to moving 309s sheathing from the shop to the display area in the car barn?   Might protect it from possible damage....

Nice!  It also helps show how much the overhead cranes now in all four bays have improved the capabilities of the shop!

Is there a way to finger joint or splice some of the old siding,
make one out of two, so there is at least some of the original
sheathing?
