Monon DS-50 Restoration Work Update

Update by Les Beckman
April 30, 2022

New photos from April 30, 2022 at the Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum:

Meanwhile, John Melnik was given the job of cutting out the cab sides of C.I.L. DS-50 (photo number five) for preservation.

The 6th shot shows the two cut out sides; one sitting in front of the other.

In our last report, we showed the fireman's seat inside the replacement cab for DS-50.  David Miller, Mark Belmonte and Les Beckman struggled with getting that fireman's seat out of the cab and were finally successful, as can be seen in the photo.  David and Mark also removed a piece of screwed down plywood from the floor on the engineer's side of the replacement cab.

The Monon projects continue ongoing at Hoosier Valley!

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