Christmas 2019 Update for 15-17 Novermber
« on: 15-Nov-2019, 17:22:09 »
From Matt Sniffen via Steve Casey:

The status of the Christmas train consist is as follows:

The RUT 260, CN 5046, and CN 5114 have all the interior and exterior decorations attached. The wiring between the RUT 260 and CN 5046 is complete as of last night. CN 5114 still needs final wiring.

The NH 3040 had the exterior lights about halfway on as of last night.

The NAUG 4992 and NAUG 4980 both still need full decorations inside and out, as well as NH 2019 and NAUG 686 with exterior decorations.

Volunteers will be needed this weekend to continue decorating the coaches, the locomotives, and the yard. I will be there on Saturday.

As of late Sunday afternoon, it looked like the exterior decorations for NH 3040, 4980 and 4992.  4980 and 4992 also had their interior decorations done but need a final cleaning.
Other work done included mechanical work on 4980 and 4992 - looked like couple knuckle replacements where needed.
NH 3040 had much work done inside including wiring, wood panel replacement as needed, and a new side door being manufactured for the west side to replace the door hacked up by the Old Saybrook Fire Dept. as they fought the fire that had been set in the adjacent bunk car.
Underneath the 3040 the new generator compartment was taking shape.
Outside, the Rutland 260 had it two new vestibule side doors fitted.
Remaining to be done: engine NH 2019, engine NAUG 686 and the yard which will include a caboose and steam loco CP 1246.
