Railroad Museum getting much needed repairs

By Major Jerry Bell

Work on the DeQuincy Railroad Museum started on Monday, Aug. 21, which began with the painting.

The work is being done by the Department of Corrections (DOC) inmates that are housed at the DeQuincy Police Dept. Supervising the painting of the museum is Quade Royer, managing the equipment, and Mike Suchanek, watching over the project.

Suchanek stated that the painting would probably take about a month and it involved three different colors, white, light and dark brown which means a lot of taping. Suchanek also stated that the roofing could be worked on at the same time as the painting.

It has been a long process to begin this project but after completion, the museum will be in better shape and something that our citizens will continue to be proud of.
