The second part of the renovation is the even older metal combine. I didn’t take photos of it before I cleaned it and primed it. The combine was actually in better condition than the coach. The original paint had been removed and the shell and underframe just needed to be washed before the primer coat of paint went on.
The combine will receive the same treatment as the coach: steam traps, end gates, diaphragms, hand rails, grab irons, Kadee couplers and Central Valley passenger trucks.
I plan on something a little different for this car though. It will be painted for the Dividing Creek, but in the old New York Central two-tone gray scheme. The idea, of course, is that DC picked up the car second-hand from the NYC.
Stay tuned for more.
