New Window Sills for 311

April 29, 2006

When time permits, a volunteer has been fitting new steel window sills into one corner of Johnstown 311 which was badly damaged by corrosion. Material and fabrication are being generously donated by Miller Welding Service of State College.

Meticulously manicured metal is test fit onto 84 year old JTC 311.

Sill Happy, After All These Years

May 29, 2006

Work continues intermittently on repairs to Johnstown 311's steelwork. New window sill stock fabricated by Miller Welding Service of State College was custom fit and welded and bolted into place. That completes steelwork on the one corner of the car which was bulging badly.

New sill sections have been fit around uprights and MIG welded together.

Now that steelwork is complete on one corner of Johnstown 311, volunteers are working on repair of the steel uprights between the windows. This work was completed on the other side of the car last year.

Johnstown 311 progress continues

January 15, 2005

Despite some very cold temperatures, a few brave volunteers have been determined to continue progress on Johnstown #311. Some work has been done on hot riveting of new letterboard, and a considerable amount has been done on the interior ceiling.

Bundled against the cold, a volunteer works on the neck-breaking task of stripping #311's ceiling.
