Remember that a lone amateur built the Ark. A large group of professionals built the Titanic.

No, they are not putting on Alaska Camouflage. Workers are priming US Army #8011 getting it prepared for display at the US Army Transportation Museum at Ft. Eustis. They have added a large shed to cover and protect their railroad equipment from the elements.
