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....
