Today we removed the cupola from the caboose, painted the snow plow, and re-covered the front of the snow plow.

Thanks to everyone who volunteered today!

In this video, we get to enjoy the sounds of the No. 2 engine on BHRS 9167 cranking and eventually starting on a cold Saturday morning.

Today, we braved the cold to transport one of our old speeders to a member's shop to begin the restoration process.

This is an original Bellefonte Central speeder. It's a Northwestern gang car with an International Harvester Green Diamond GRD175A flat six engine, 4-speed transmission, reversible final drive, and chain drive to both axles.

This car, when completed, will make short work of hauling ties and ballast when making track repairs, and should also allow us to offer speeder rides on our track in Lemont.

We'll post pictures as progress is made.
