Love for a locomotive

Durango train buffs are in 10th year of restoring No. 315
Sample work

A list of one day’s work planned recently by members of the Durango Railroad Historical Society on a gondola car they are restoring:
b Fit, drill and attach oak end panels for the steel end sills.
b Drill brake cylinder mounting holes through the new center wood sills.
b Drill out all the holes in the center sills for mounting the nailers (wood beams running the length of the frame to nail the center flooring to).
b Start removing the side boards on the high sided gondola.
b For the 315: Thread the 1/8 pipe sections for the flue-cleaning brushes.
