Rationalize MoW rollingstock
Submitted: 07/04/18 ? By: John Eilers Location: Inventory Category: Rolling Stock
Assigned: 10/16/18 ? To: Jud Reeves Priority: Medium ETA: 03/19/19
Skills Taught: Documentation
Detailed Description (What):
review existing MoW equipment and create a reasonable set of equipment, upgrade cars as appropriate.
Paint all cars as needed
Currently the club has Ken Kilby’s very very nice MoW train, a set of cheap Santa Fe MoW cars and assorted other cars of low quality. This includes three cranes and for some reason 4 boom cars. The paint schemes are a riot of colors and some cars that might make sense are missing (water cars)
Suggest that a rationalization of the MoW fleet is done. Create one or possible 2 consists. Use Ken’s well done equipment as a start add as appropriate. Write up bullet point fast facts about train to tell visitors.
This would be a good example project for how club Rolling Stock could be used in shows and events.
