The plan is to hire a contractor to sandblast and paint the hopper. That might have been happening this week but there appears to be a hangup in getting the paint delivered. And there remains a waiting line for equipment to enter and be processed in the Barn 2 shop. The next freight car planned to see attention there will be MILW 01984 caboose scheduled for end of July inside Barn 2.
Back to the hopper, we could really use any and all donations sent to Fund R70104.
