Unwrapped! ex-Rochester Gas & Electric (nee General Electric Lynn, MA) #1941 sits in the R&GVRRM’s restoration shop late on Tuesday evening, 9.27.2011. The masking protecting the green and yellow from the black paint overspray has been removed as the black on the undercarriage was completed the day before, the trackmobile that has allowed the engine to be towed in and out of the shop for painting has been uncoupled for the last time, and the south footboards reinstalled. More finishing details like sliding window painting, wood backer board install on the footboards, and the application of the replica RG&E decals to the engine’s sides will take place during the upcoming work sessions. Stay tuned for more updates, but this evening marks a major milestone in the restoration of #1941 as all of the major paint work is complete, and we soon hope to have it out of the shop running!
