We were happy to see Trolley Care Class Alumni Paul and Noah visiting last weekend, while Adam and Jim were in yesterday to lend a hand. They helped Kelly with the maintenance of car 4, then assisted with cleaning up the shop and doing a bit of work on 836.
We are also delighted to welcome a new member to the shop, Paul James.
The shop is taking advantage of having its hands on 836. The doors are being sanded down and re-varnished by John. Bruce and Paul have started work replacing the damaged window sash on the car's north side, which survived the last operating season held in place by duct tape. Fred began sanding down the tired looking window sills, in preparation for some touch-up painting.
The north-east doors have already received one fresh coat of varnish
The damaged section of window sash has been removed
Work also progresses on 3001. John has stripped the remaining tar paper from the roof. Yesterday, the trolley bases were removed. Now, work can begin on removing the rotten roofing from the car.
John waits atop 3001 for Galen to return in the front loader after depositing the first trolley base in the storage pod. Jim and Paul observe the action.
Roof removal has begun on the east end of the car
