Great to see this car being restored. Living in Fla, it's difficult to visit as often as I'd like to. Looking forward to seeing it in IC colors on my [...]

I am a fan of heavyweight like John McLoughlin and Mt Harvard. They only need one color Pullman green! Ted Miles

I saw the IC car today and the paint looks wonderful. The car will stand out in a train once it it ready for service. Great job!

Hi there I just wanted to say I really enjoyed working on this car although you forgot to mention my help on working on it.

Mike G. about The dream, Believe It!
Sun, 09-10-2017 09:11

Does that mean that Barn 10 is the designated "Coach Yard"?


Patrick about The dream, Believe It!
Thu, 09-07-2017 20:27
That might be a bit too much bridge. Measuring it on Google Maps makes it out to be around 102 feet. Using the same tools, the UP bridge at the river [...]

Hi Matt We estimate the costs for installing 100 amp 240 volt stand by service would be between $2500 to $3000. Our shop is now designated area of [...]
