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.

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


Patrick about The dream, Believe It!

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 [...]
