Southern Pacific #18 – May and June 2024

Things are going back together on our #18! The first of June saw a group gather to continue the reassembly process and take care of a handful of other menial, yet important chores.

Along with locomotive work, some important housekeeping was undertaken that required moving our track implements into storage boxcar 15. Lastly, while no work was done on boxcar 1C this weekend in Independence, the doors are coming along nicely and will be ready to return in the very near future.

As always, we appreciate everyone’s support as we couldn’t do it without you. And for a reminder of how far we have come, take a look at the following pictures of #18 taken 43 years ago, 23 year ago, and 3 years ago; what a ride of a project its been!
