WORKING ON THE RAILROAD
The Restore 3713 project is a joint effort of the Lackawanna and Wyoming Valley Railway Historical Society and the Steamtown National Park to restore to running order The Constitution, a heavy express passenger locomotive of the Boston and Maine Railroad. There's a model of it in progress in my basement, which is supposed to look something like this when it's finished:

Although there's a lot to be done on it yet, the model does not require the kind of heavy labor the prototype does to get it into running order.
