2015 Projects completed/started/waiting
Below are projects that the museum has identified as being started in the calendar year of 2015. We have a fair number of projects that need to be done but monetary and other resources only allow the following for this year.
Walt, Joe and Bud poseing for the camera after replacing a major part of the railing on the trestle.
BN caboose #10411 had both ends repainted to safety yellow.
NP replica bunkhouse paint was coming off, it was determined that there was not enough ventilation in the building. The building was primed and left for now.
GN caboose X73 had paint on one end to test color before proceeding to paint the entire caboose.
NP flat car 64027 was repainted to black sides and ready for stenciling yet this summer.
Work has started in repairing and repainting our main museum building.
Installing signs on the side of Soo 282 caboose.
Painting the orders mast that was used in Glen Ullin.
Replace the siding on the south side of the depot. The photo shows the north side of the depot which is done along with both ends. Painting the white on the depot will start on August 14th.
Painting the NP generator.
Replacement of the shingles on the two Soo speeder shacks is complete.
Scraping and primeing the trim on the Steele depot.
A crew went thru the Soo and steel NP box car on the south side of the property to clean them out one of them can be used for exhibits. We hope to get a platform built this year to allow visitors to enter and walk around inside the box car.
Build a new sidewalk from the back of our main museum building to the steps of the Steele depot. This would include a short section from the sidewalk to the deck on our main museum building.
Setup the NP 1720 steam engine headlight in the depot. Work has started to build the support needed to hang the headlight.
A couple of volunteers doing what they do best!
