Even with winter having its firm grip on the Rochester & Genesee Valley Railroad Museum, restoration and maintenance still continues in the museum’s shop during both the Tuesday and Saturday work sessions.    The shops allows our volunteers to work out of the weather, and improvements to the shop are constantly being made.   The next planned improvement is to start to install the concrete floor in the shop with funds coming from our ‘Building Tracks to the Future’ annual fund drive.

On Tuesday evening, 2/2/2010, it was time for our Case 560 Super K backhoe to get a little dental work done to its bucket to remove a broken tooth in preparation to weld and bolt on a new tooth in preparation for the spring work around the museum.    Museum volunteers, Rob Burz (pictured below), Pete Gores, and Chad Timothy took turns grinding and then finally using “a bigger hammer” removed the broken tooth.
