I do tend to agree with the yes, restore it...but maybe not just yet, and focus on making the grounds and experience to the every day (non railfan, big key word here) audience.

I agree with the idea of more covered storage, which I believe John mentioned was happening in Chama until Covid delayed it.

While I will never argue covered storage one bit, I do really hate the "stuff as much as we can into this tiny building" style so many places go after. I live 1000 miles away, yes, C&TS is a living museum, but I also want to see everything that the friends and RR has accomplished over the years, in more then just a shoehorned building setting with just enough room to walk between the cars.
Some sort of indoor display that the restored equipment can be rotated through would be nice. I cant drop everything and fly out for an excursion, or photo freight, etc. I love MoW equipment, so I was indeed a bit bummed out when I visited in August and OB and OP were buried in the shed.

Antonito defiantly had a tinge (not nearly as bad as many other places) of "junkyard" feel to it. Chama felt more historic to me. In this day an age, especially after the Noblesville fiasco last year, I really think every single museum and tourist train should be well on top of keeping the grounds SPOTLESS. It just takes one wrong set of eyes these days to spot something not kosher.
