ISSI was happy to help restore an antique passenger car for the Wheels Museum! We donated a Marsh Stencil machine and supplies for this restoration project with the help of our senior technician, C.W. Schulze who has 42 years of experience with this machinery.
ISSI was recently contacted to help in the restoration of a 1952 Budd stainless steel sleeper rail car, The Silver Iris. The rail car restoration is being done for the Wheels Museum in Albuquerque, New Mexico by Mr. Kurt Olsen. The museum plans to join the Silver Iris and a 1937 Acoma First Class Lounge Car. Upon completion the train will run excursions between Albuquerque and Santa Fe.
In the restoration, historically correct stencils need to be applied using a Marsh model R, 1” stencil machine. As the largest independent distributor for Marsh Stencil products, Industrial & Shippers was pleased to restore and donate the machine and supplies needed for the project. Our senior technicain, C.W. Schulze, who has over 42 years of experience repairing Marsh Stencil Machines was up to the task.
ISSI is pleased to have been part of this project. The Historic Preservation of these magnificent trains is a great way to learn more of our history and how transportation helped shape our great communities!
