Documenting siding
Volunteers document the siding on the combine car.

At the end of the 2005 operating season, Combine #14 was placed in the Paint Shop in preparation for the planned FEBT restoration. Work on the car began during the January Session. Thorough documentation was done on the car before any disassembly was done, including photos and measurements.

Disassembly then started. All the lower siding and the upper roof coverings were removed from the car. The passenger end platform was removed from the car, including all metalwork, steps and decking.
