Fall maintenance has begun for the operating fleet. Kelly and Adam cared for car 836 then jumped up to the shop to help Galen and Rob Brogle with 5645. These two cars are now ready for the special events season. Galen, John, and Rob repaired a damaged brake beam on 5645 yesterday. Car 1326 is back in the shop with more motor gearing issues. It will be out of service for several weeks while the repair is made and additional preventative actions are taken. Maintenance work for the fleet will continue next weekend.

The first armature for car 3001 has returned from refurbishment.

Roofing Started on 1

Galen, Brian, and Tim began the installation of the roll roofing onto line car 1. All material is laid down. It will need to be tucked and trimmed at the edges and the seams sealed. They began marking out positions for the roof cleats.
