Coach #9109 - One of Reading's Blue Gooses rides again!
Our most recent project was the restoration of 9109 to have it ready for train service for the busy holiday season. We chose to restore this coach back to its original Reading Heritage scheme, a blue and cream color. The project began in the Spring of 2009 and is scheduled to be completed in the Spring of 2010.
Some of the things done include:
- Restoration and rahabing of the exterior
- Reglazing the windows
- Steam cleaning the seat backs and cushions
- Cleaning the inside top to bottom
- Rewiring the electrical system
- Cleaning and servicing the brake valves
9109 as of September 2009
