1929




2017 Side



November 2017



If it is ok, I will post our progress here. I am sure this will be a long hard road and I would like to use this for a record of progress. Our goal is to keep the whole station as original as possible while retaining the addition that was added in the 1950's. I will be posting more current pics and as the work goes on I will update. If there are any tips, pointers, or otherwise good info; I am all ears! Thanks for looking.


Adam

Very cool design on the canopy. It looks like a solid project to start with overall.
Good luck on your endeavour, we look forward to watching the progress!

From the looks of the building , I would say you don't have that much to deal with . I wouldn't hesitate for a minute to restore the place back to it's original configuration .
