The 5057 has a new set of shoes, black composite brake shoes borrowed for this trip from our friends at the Feather River Rail Society (FRRS). The brake shoes and a number of other borrowed parts will need to be removed, returned, and replaced after the 5057 arrives at the POVA shop. We are very grateful for the assistance that the "Willing People" at FRRS have provided to get the 5057 ready to move. They have deferred working on their own important projects to help us.

We will let everyone know once we are on the move. In the meantime, think positive thoughts about the 5057!
