Sprucing Up the Old Standbys

In preparation for opening day, the shop has been hard at work on a pair of beautification efforts inside the Visitors' Center.

Car 65 is being given a faux roof on the west end. The drop clothes will be painted grey to simulate canvas.

Meanwhile, an effort is underway to make car 10's controller operational, so that visitor's can experience what it is like to notch a controller. The spring inside that affixes to the reverser is broken and will be replaced to restore functionality. In the meantime, a thick layer of dirt and tarnish was removed from the controller cover, revealing the beautiful brass underneath.
