Flanger move

A tentative date has finally been set for the movement of the NRM’s ex-CNR Flanger.  If all goes well, the flanger will be loaded in the morning on Saturday, September 29th, and arrive at the shop before noon.  The car will be unloaded into the north track, which was the heavy repair bay.  This will allow the Museum to properly assess the condition of the car, and begin the longterm restoration.

 

This will be a lengthy restoration, as the car is basically a frame only.  We will need to rebuild all the wood structure back to its original design.  Therefore, the NRM is also looking at fundraising for this restoration, and are accepting materials, or cash donations.  Any donations will be noted on the inside of the flanger, on the donor wall for that particular project, and are also eligible for a charitable tax receipt.  Please contact the NRM for more information on this project, and check back soon to see pictures of the move.
