Folks, Don't you just love the fact that Pullman used interchangeable parts in their cars! It is so great to see the paint coming off and the varnish going back on. Ted Miles, IRM Member for 2016

Ted, "Interchangeable" is a relative term here. I personally dug out 4 or 5 nearly identical tables from a car that is used for storage, but the latches that grab the slots in the wall were all spaced differently then the slots on the Dover. Some on a larger spacing, some on a smaller spacing. Roger probably dug out 3 or 4 times as many tables as I did trying to find ones with the correct spacing.

Hello Dan Thanks for your interest in Irm and volunteering. There is a group of guys that meet every Wed in the wood shop to work on various projects. My team is working on mfg of windows for the Mt Harvard and restoring finishes on wood tables and doors to the Dover Strait. Buzz is working the mfg of windows for an IC steam engine and Victor is working on the Pennsy caboose. There is also about the same crew on Saturdays. Hope to see you soon Roger

I was just looking at the Dover strait entry in the Equipment Roster pages. The Dover straight is still listed as an Elgin & Joliet work car. With all the thousands of hours of restoration work that have gone into the car; it deserves to be listed by its own name Dover Strait. Ted miles, IRM Member
