8179 sure has gone through quite a transformation. Check out that new siding and metal roof. The corners of the roof still need to be added once they are measured and fabricated. Photo by Bill Pratt summer 2005.

This shot of 8179 was taken by Bill Pratt on October 20, 2004. The car was temporarily covered with particle board to protect it from the elements. The particle board is slowly being replaced with new siding. Metal roof panels have been ordered and should go on this summer.

This is believed to be 8179 as that number is stenciled inside the car according to Bill. Photos by Bill Pratt, September 2002.
