Hello Roger. What are the best days to come out to volunteer in the passenger car department? I am interested in helping out during the summer. Is there a particular place to meet before getting to work?

Hello Tom Since being retired I spend many of my spare time[ days] at Irm. We meet generally on Wednesdays and ,of course, Saturdays and Sundays. The eastern end of barn of barn 3 which house many of our passenger equipment is where there is adequate parking. If you have time today we will be working away on a number of projects included in this blog. See you then. Hope you enjoy your experience! Roger

That ceiling really makes 2612's interior look good. I can't wait to see it in person.

Hello Brian Thank you very much! Right now I'm working installing new wood window sills that were removed last year. With another twelve seat cushions reupholstered the car is really looking sharp. Roger

one clever idea is to have all 6 RI cars plus CNW 7700 behind CNW 1689. with Mt. Pleasant in the rear (once it arrives).

Hello Raphael You might be waiting for a long time to see six rock cars in service. 2524 has yet to been given any funding to start the restoration project. There is no Mt. Pleasant! I think you are referring to the Mt. Hartvard, yes? Roger

Mt. Hartvard, yes, thats what i meant.

Hello Raphael Very Good! Did you see the latest blog on the Mt.Harvrd?
# Roger Kramer on 2015-06-10 08:06
did it have a balcony like the inglehome once?

Hello again, Raphael. Yes it was first built w/ an Observation deck but was removed in 1939 and rebuilt to its present configuration. Please read the two blogs regard the Mt. Harvard. Thanks Roger

As built, Mt. Harvard was an open platform car with nearly identical floor plan to the Inglehome. The only difference was the carbody construction. Despite Mt. Harvard's conversion to a solarium in 1939-1940, the interior accommodations remain quite similar.
