Luggage rack braces, tarnished after years of neglect in the elements, are being polished to a shiny, brass finish by Chris Noce, lead metal fabricator at the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad car shop. The braces will be placed back on “Yankee Girl,” built in 1880 and being restored into a parlor car.
