It has been a busy year so far for the air jacks. Today it was Johnstown 311 that needed a lift, so the trucks can be sent off-site for rebuilding.

You keep hearing about Johnstown 355. Now that the weather is warm, we are back at work on Johnstown 311, the car which is in our own shop for repairs. Perhaps we will name 2006, "The Year of Johnstown Trolleys".

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.

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.

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.
