Monon DS-50 Restoration Work Update

Update by Les Beckman
April 23, 2022


Spring Day at HVRM

Some photos from today at Hoosier Valley:

Shot number 1 shows Mark Belmonte looking under the replacement cab which will be used for Monon DS-50, as Jason Jordan, David Miller and Joe Kingsbury (left to right) look on.







Second photo shows the new thick wood floorboards earmarked for the replacement cab.





David Miller cleaned up debris in the replacement cab and the results on the fireman's side are seen in the 3rd photo.






Much more still to do, but we're getting there!

This old fool was surprised to find the original cab floor made of wood instead of steel….not as slippery?
