The Lynne was kept in the backshop yard until presented a few minutes before boarding.

This is what she looked like as she was moved up to the Depot for Boarding.

The "Lynne" script on the side is a vinyl decal at this point.  In a few minutes the actual brass name plate was presented and installed on the car by the cousins of Lynne Marie Chambers.

This video was posted to posted to Youtube by an attendee  (Pianojazzology) of the convention.  I have not found out who it was yet, but when I do I will give them credit.  It is a 2 minute video of the train moving from the backshop to the depot for boarding.  A most historic for the Monon Railroad Historical - Technical Society, Inc.

Thanks from all of us for sharing this video.
