Durango & Silverton injects new life into old train car

‘Yankee Girl’ may debut this summer
A pressed-tin ceiling brightens up the interior of “Yankee Girl,” being worked on by Wes Akers, plumber and carpenter with the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. The car, built as a coach in 1880, is scheduled to debut as the newest parlor car in May.
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.
After being sanded down, the soon-to-be-debuted “Yankee Girl” reveals many coats of paint it’s worn in its 134 years. The Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad’s shop is working on restoring it into a parlor car.
