Current Projects in the Boone and Scenic Valley Railroad Restoration Shop
We are in the process of restoring this car to how it looked when used on the commuter trains in Chicago.
Once complete, look for it to be part of the consist on the Fraser Excursion trains.
Locomotive #2254 has been undergoing some restoration this past winter.
The exterior is finished, and the interior soon will be as well.
Here is how it looked after it rolled out of the shop for the first time after painting.
Our Rock Island Coach is getting some repairs made, starting with the trucks.
Our steam locomotive, 8419, is going through the normal off season inspections and repairs. In the picture above, Eli and Darin work on disassembly of an injector for steam locomotive 8419.
We are always looking for volunteers to help out in the shop. We do everything from patching rust holes to rebuilding 1000hp diesel engines to renovating passenger cars (and everything in between.) If you are interested in helping out, call or e-mail Travis Stevenson at (515)-432-4278 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
