RR Museum of Long Island Cars Painted Back To Orginal LIRR Colors

Recommended Posts

Good Evening,

 

After a very long day of work, I am pleased to announce that End of Steam Ceremony P-72 2924 is once again in her original as delivered grey color along with BM-62 7737. We were very lucky to have the help of 12 young people to help us with the work. The cars have never looked better! Plans call to put lettering on them in the near future. 7737 previously was in yellow red and blue, to act as a circus car, so it was time to go back to LIRR paint.

 

I am extremely happy with the result, and despite the fact, I am exhausted and smell like Rustolium, it was an OUTSTANDING day!

 

Make sure to come out to our Riverhead Site to see them!!!

Good Morning,

 

Before I leave to get some paint on our Caboose, C-68 I thought I would share with you, what myself and President Don Fisher worked on yesterday to further restore passanger car 2924 as well as BM-62 7737. The under carriage and steps of these cars got a nice gloss black and our looking great! Check back later for photos of C-68
