Update on SP 1727 restoration in Dunsmuir
Author: Soo715

The cosmetic restoration of Southern Pacific 1727, on display in Dunsmuir, has been going very well thanks to a sustained volunteer effort as well as professional painting made possible by a fundraising effort organized by "Friends of the 1727."  The engine had fallen into serious disrepair and it is nice to see it looking good once again.

Here is a link to their latest newsletter, which includes some photos by TO member Ryan Wilkerson.  https://us3.campaign-archive.com/?e=aec9f970df&u=515bfa754dc6a54bf9c2a2fb9&id=c0b4310220

The 1727s original Pyle National headlight is ready for paint. Still working on number boards Planning on using automotive single stage enamel as a finish when all parts are ready for prime and gloss black paint.
