Session G - September 27 in Antonito

The images here and on subsequent dates have been provided from the Chronicler volunteers (and others) from Session G in Antonito, including work progress on the Depot Landscaping, Car Lettering, Long Stock Car 5995, Frameless Tank Cars 11-36 and 11037, Period Trucks for Passenger Coaches, and UTLX Tank 11050. Other projects scheduled for Session G were cancelled for one reason or another. Projects not presented in this first upload of photos will probably be resented in subsequent uploads. Thanks to all for the photos. If you have photos you would like to add, please do! Captions from John cole. Thanks, John!

Bill Oltman was the team leader on that high side gon and we took that car down to the trucks and built it back up to the beautiful car you see today. I would say that Bill did a great job as a first time team leader wouldn't you?
