I've been working on a railroad

I've just recently started working with a great group of gentlemen restoring an old caboose, built I believe in 1898, from the Petaluma & Santa Rosa Railroad. They have done an amazing job, and I am mostly just trying to stay out of their way.

BEFORE ( a long time ago)

A more recent before.(2 years ago, shortly after arrival)

And now.

You may note the lack of trucks (wheels) and the cupola. The cupola is off getting a separate facelift. The trucks, which have their own amazing stories, arrived this weekend.  Again, BEFORE

And now
Several photos by Gus, Thanks!
