September, 2015 Work Weekend

Despite it being only 5 days since the end of the 2015 Old Threshers Reunion, a few volunteers came for the September work weekend. (This blogger was not one of them!)

There was a flurry of activity inside the South Station, getting it ready for the 2015 "Midwest Haunted Rails." Outside the South Station, there was a flurry of activity getting the trains ready for MHR as well as moving the extra pieces to a more convenient place.

Inside the South Station, the first load of skeletons awaiting placement were queued up on the benches in front of the OTR ticket counter.

Various members moved rolling stock from here to there and back to here.

The next series of pictures started on the work weekend and continued for the next few weeks. Prop Maker Matt C. discovered the great job a weed trimmer makes on extruded foam insulation. A large cave-like enclosure was created for "Moby."
