On Thursday August 26th, 2004, City of Niagara Falls workers loaded the 4 remaining whistle posts onto our trailer at the works department yard.

After being tied down to the trailer, the posts were transported to the NRM site for safe and secure storage.

Work Session – July 10th, 2004

NFRM members Ken Jones Jr. and Aaron White spent the day beginning the restoration of the lettering on our boxcars. The photographs below show our current progress. We began by wirebrushing and masking off the existing lettering, which on the block lettered car, had all but rusted away. After masking was completed, the lettering was given a coat of primer to make it easier to apply the topcoat. 2 coats of white rust paint were applied, allowed to set and then the masking was removed. There was some bleeding due to the surface condition of the metal but overall we are quite satisfied with the way that the lettering turned out. We have a long way to go yet, but every little piece helps.
