The Trust grant will assist in the restoration of the exterior of the storage building and rehabilitate the interior for use as a conference/visitor center. Work includes masonry repairs and repointing, replacing missing windows and doors, rehabilitating an interior, and installing building systems. The main locomotive works building was rehabilitated as a training center with support from a previous Trust grant.
A previous Trust grant will funded exterior restoration and enabling systems in the first phase of the building's $6.3 million adaptive use as a "Transportation Opportunity Center."
