I would guess we are ahead of the curve in making the battens since the weather is not good enough yet to do serious work on the depot. Dave D has a lot going on getting things shipshape for opening day next weekend, the Barn 4 addition, and a myriad of other things. But the battens are on his list for this season. We also hope to make a new personnel 'raised panel' door for the depot.
I cannot speak to the diner work.
