"I've been working on the railroad..."
"...all the live-long day."
As a Painting Contractor, my work is largely limited to interior and exterior residential renovations of homes. But being a professional that marches to the beat of a different drum, I'm always on the lookout for something a bit...different. Historic signs, old buckboard wagons, restoring 1940s cigarette machines or chrome-laden midcentury bicycles, maybe repainting a small lighthouse -- the more unusual the project, the more appeal it holds to me.
After reaching out to Downeast Scenic Railroad and corresponding over a few months (due to a comically late letter that apparently spent a few months bouncing around various USPS sort facilities) I was invited to take a private tour of the railyard to discuss future work.
To say I was "geeking out" is an understatement. If the details can be hammered out to benefit all parties (and there are many), I think this may be the most exciting project Gatcomb Painting & Design has ever undertaken. Looking forward to 2021!
