More progress has been made on the interior restoration of ex-New York Central Empire State Express coach #2567. This past Tuesday evening, September, 7, the priming of the newly installed lower walls was started with one side completed during the work session. It is hoped the other side will be completed next Tuesday evening so that finish painting of the entire interior of the car can begin once a little more prep work is completed on the ceiling and upper walls.
In the meantime, here are some images of the progress from Tuesday evening.
