 Chicago & North Western 411 Painting Project 
In this Album you will see our progress on preparing Metra 305 for painting back to C&NW 411. The volunteers of the Diesel Shop have been busy removing sheets of vinyl, removing a lot of rust and rot, and performing a lot of other work as shown below. The amount of body work turned out to be much more extensive than we had anticipated, but the end result will certainly be worth it. Sandblasting, priming and painting will be outsourced to the Wisconsin & Southern paint shop in Horicon, Wisconsin. This album also includes the work to replace the HEP radiators in one of the hatches. Click an image for a larger view and for a detailed description, the most recent photos are listed first.
