Recent Restorations at Snoqualmie

Cleaning and painting of the various pieces took a few days. It was not hard work, but it was monotonous work. New steel was purchased to replace the old steel that was damaged and seriously corroded. With all the pieces ready to go, Rich W. put most of the frame back together himself, only needing a bit of help putting one corner back together. Much of the original hardware was salvaged and reused, but some new hardware was needed.
