Repainting Hallway in 1950’s and 1960’s Great Northern Railway
Museum Treasurer Todd Blixt took on the painstaking project of repainting the back hallway across from the HO train-room. His efforts required use of computer software to properly match and scale the stripe and company lettering. Afterwards, a substantial number of hours went into painting the wall so the finished product resembled a Great Northern locomotive. Repainting the hallway
is just one major step in the process of renovating this section of the museum. The next step will be installing a gallery hanging system for displaying famed photographs and paintings. Once completed, this improved area will be known as the Great Northern Railway Gallery Wing. It will be used to interpret the company’s history through images and text.
