Caboose saved

To the Editor,

On behalf of the Elkhart Lake Historical Society (ELHS) we want to express our sincere gratitude for the Review & Beacon free advertising from January to date for our Caboose restoration project. I feel it was extremely effective in reaching households that are not on our mailing lists. It is truly remarkable the local support we have seen, without which we could not have completed a project of this scale.

The restoration of Soo Line 247 is now complete. The ELHS along with its supporting partners is now ready (to use your words) to move from "Save the Caboose" to "Preserve the Caboose" and understand the costs and details of building a protective awning over the Caboose. It is our belief that this course of action will protect our recent resto- ration efforts and minimize future maintenance costs.

We are currently trying to understand the design, zoning and cost parameters to present our case to our community and to move forward. As you know there is always more to these projects than meets the eye. We are forever grateful for your support and look forward to our future relationship. I will reach out as soon as I have more information as to how we move forward.

Thank you Barry, Christie, and Ian!


Steve Sutcliffe
