Red is the New Gray

The Valley Railroad's Engine House (built in the 1970's) has received a paint job and a striking new color.
All of the rolling stock normally along side the Engine House had to be moved else where for the duration of the project.
 Although the roof of the building has been painted several times, the sides and ends have remained untouched until Facilities Manager Ed Brigman and his crew (Colin Ewart, Bart Hartzell and Liu Jian) washed and scrubbed the building prior to priming and painting.
Ed up on the man lift we rented to paint the upper areas of the Dickinson (River Valley Junction) building and the Engine House.
 The color was chosen to match the adjoining Locomotive Servicing Facility which was built in 2014.
