Southern Pacific #18 update – June 2018

As is often the case with the CCRW, work weekends in the summer months are usually few and far between. One recent work day had boxcar #6 move to its new display site in Dehy Park. After literally dozens of boxcar moves over the past decades the CCRW has gotten very good at moving these cars, this one taking only half a day to accomplish. With #6 now at its final location it can be lettered and the remainder of the display can be set up around it.

Looking ahead to other upcoming projects, our restoration boxcar #15 will be placed on trucks and moved inside the engine house for future work, track and museum site work will be ongoing, and finally work on buttoning up the smokebox and some other odds and ends on the #18 will be on the docket in the near future as well in preparation for our October 5-6th operations. Make your plans now to join us! As always, thank you for your continued support!
