ONGOING PROPERTY-WIDE STAIR REPLACEMENT

 After 47 years of Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall, we're currently in the process of rebuilding the stairs that lead up to each caboose. For the original 2 rows of cabooses (#1-12 and 20-29) we'll be preserving Don Denlinger's original Pennsylvania Dutch-themed railings by constructing the wooden staircase between the railings.
