Last month the Boy Scouts of America, Troop 23 and Troop 10 completed two amazing projects at the Gold Coast Railroad. Mr. Jose Ocana put his planning and leadership skills to the test by directing Troop 23 in a landscaping project in the front parking lot, next to our Caboose. Additionally, Troop 23 also completed a landscaping project near the GCRM administration building.

Mr. Brian Phillips tested Troop 10's artistic ability as he coordinated and lead Troop 10 to paint the now 100 year old Florida East Coast No. 113. This beautiful engine was brought underneathe the railroad shed on Track No. 1 for display. The FEC No. 113 turns 100 years old this month - but celebrated it's birthday last month during National Train Day. Mr. Phillips & Troop 10's paint job revitalized the No. 113 and looks very professional. 

Both Mr. Phillips & Mr. Ocana completed their Eagle Scout projects, and recieved recognition from the Museum for their volunteer service. We would personally like to thank both Troops & families involved in both projects.
