For the King Cotton, has the owner made any decisions to whether it's officially yours or not?

I cannot answer officially but it is listed in our official roster. So it may be ours or be covered under another agreement. Donations are being accepted and a restricted fund is established. We will wait for someone from the coach dept to answer. Bob Kutella

what is the status of the electroliner and when might we see her back in use

I will let someone in the Electric Car Department reply with details. The short story is that volunteers continue to work on the set, where we can accomplish the work on site. The big stumbling block is the deteriorated condition of the motors. A few have been reconditioned and rebuilt, but another has failed and the remaining originals as we got it are suspect. Each motor requires a lot of work to remove - they come out from UNDER the car while over a pit - and very expensive to send to a shop While it remains a fan favorite, monetary support is 'thin'.

if ya could, could you get some exterior photos of the empire builder car?

The car is inside Barn 3 and tough to get a whole view. I have builders photos and other in service views but have been advised by the Passenger Car Department Head not to post any entry or comment without his review, edit and approval, so will have to end this answer here. I do not understand that, but will comply. He is aware of your question. Bob Kutella
