Vulcanic Eruption!

Last weekend Karl, Dennis, Patti, Karell and Phil worked on the old P.C. Box car #1516. They re-hung the door and got the old tin roof back in place. The next step is to cover the tin roof with a plywood and rolled roofing. It was also discovered that the door we rehung is the original! The old F&CC is still just visible.

“Down, boy!” (The roof, not the pug. See last
week’s pic if the lame joke was over your head.)

Meanwhile, Jim and Phil finished stripping the Vulcan. The front end is gutted and all the jewelry has been removed. It is scheduled to be loaded on Dwight Peterson’s truck on Sunday and, Monday morning, will be headed for Boschan Boiler. The tender is separated and Phil and Karl would like to have it painted and lettered, in the old PCRy Railroad Roman style, when it returns. We shall see…

Where’s Mike Rowe when you need him?
