It has been a very productive summer for our New York Central crossing shanty restoration project. The shanty now has all new skirting to help support it and is seen here getting a complete roof replacement. Charlie Marks and his son Jesse have been instrumental in leading this restoration project.

Daylight… Part of the roof has been removed to be replaced. The roof was found to be in very poor condition so a complete replacement was necessary.

Project leader Charlie Marks nails down some of the new roof boards.
