As summer came to a close in Fairbanks, Alaska, so did the conservation work to preserve Bus 142 in preparation for its future exhibit. In early October, 2023, the bus was escorted to an undisclosed storage facility, where it will be cared for until the outdoor shelter has been completed within the wooded grounds beside the UAF Museum of the North. We have exciting announcements upcoming about the progress of that shelter and the correlating indoor exhibit, so please stay tuned for further information. To learn more about the preservation of Bus 142 from those that were hands-on in the process, check out this podcast hosted by the museum’s Director of Exhibits, Roger Topp, who visited with the crew of B.R. Howard & Associates throughout the project.
