Can somebody call a roofer?

A further step in the restoration of our historic “Retlaw One” coaches occured on Tuesday, when car 104, “Land of Pueblos,” became the first transported to Hillcrest Shops of Reedley, CA, for re-roofing. Disney fans may know Hillcrest as the restorer of the “Marie E,” Ollie Johnston’s 1901 Porter which was run at Disneyland last year by its current owner, Pixar and Walt Disney Imagineering’s John Lasseter. Other projects tackled by Hillcrest’s talented crew, headed by Sean Bautista, have included the construction of new, 15″ to 3′ gauge steam locomotives and rolling stock, along with the recent revival of the famous Nut Tree Railroad.

When work on Car 104 is complete, it will return to the Ranch, where the three others will follow on a one-by-one basis.
