I NEVER thought the day would come when the RRMoLI would clean the equipment and buildings up a little. While there still is a lot more to go, it is a start. I will have to make a trip out one day to take a look. Great looking work so far.

And don't you worry, there is much more to come. The M-1s are going to get some sprucing up next weekend.
 
But, until the caboose, baggage car and passanger car have letering I don't plan to start another project. Not good to be doing 10 things at once. But I do have plans to get paint on more cars and buildings next year

Evening Folks!
 
We have been very busy at the Railroad Museum of Long Island this spring so far!
 
In Greenport the new exhibit for 2010 is underway and the restrooms are getting some renovations.  
 
In Riverhead a lot has been going on as well. The last few weekends we have been working on getting the G-16 inch gauge 1964 World's Fair train ready! The locomotive and cars have been given there annual inspection and fluid replacement, and are ready to go. We have also done some major track work, which included pulling ties and cleaning out crossings and switches. She is  ready to go and will be running when we open on April 10th next week!
 


 
We have also been working on the cosmetic restoration of BEDT 0-6-0T Engine 16. Plans for this loco include major wood replacement, paint, placing it on wheels and track, lettering and installation of working accessories such as headlights, bells and gauges. She will look good when she is done.  Thus far we have put in new metal under her belly to keep her from falling apart and it looks great! Today President Don Fisher and I cleaned the belly and applied paint to the engine. It is starting to take shape but there is still a long way to go.

Painting today




The end result


 
This year there will be a lot of progress at the RMLI. We hope you will come out and pay us a visit this year! So far plans call for the compleation of Hack C-68 and coaches 2924 and 7737. A few of our buildings will also get paint and major work. There is so much to list, may be easier to come and see for yourself

Evening Folks!
 
Rather then doing my usual weekly updates, they will now be featured on our website, at the Railroad Museum of Long Island. There is a lot of work going on this year, with a lot of different equipment, so make sure to take a look every few weeks to see what is going on. I'll still make these posts here so you know to look!

Thank you for your interest!

What are you folks using for track lubrication? Grease? I've also seen a thick oil used on 16" lines sporting G-16s like yours.  
 
Any plans to get rid of that awful hood?

Hi WH,
 
We use blue greese on the track, a little does like magic for the flanges.
 
You know, it has been talked about, replacing the current motor in it and getting a smaller one. Right now we don't plan on doing it since it is running, but someday when we have to replace it we will do it and get a new hood, so it is orginal again

Thanks.  
 
We use a very heavy duty/thick powder type grease. Again, I'm not running around in a 600' oval on  
pancake flat ground so you guys likely have a little more give when it comes to grease on the rails. I know I'd rather over grease and get some on the rail heads and have a slipping problem on a 600' oval than my 4 miles with grades, grade crossings, bridges, tunnels, etc. LOL!
