Paul’s Blog – February 18, 2023

On Saturday, February 18, Dwight Maxey, Colin Mellin and Paul Brown gathered at the Museum shop to work on maintaining and cleaning up our equipment. The first task we tackled was getting the batteries removed from the Hi-Rail truck once again, to charge them due to a continuing problem on the truck which drains the batteries. We will have to continue to troubleshoot this issue until solved. We also worked to get some more tools on board the truck, so when we can rely on it, we can head out to do track work and have enough tools to do that work. Lastly, we cleaned off the locomotive battery cart and the gang car, which had gathered way too much junk being stacked on each. Sometimes it is hard to remember where you set something down and don’t come right back for it, it was probably on one of these pieces of equipment!!

I have included a few pictures to show the activity. If you are reading this email and live reasonably close to Pueblo CO, please consider coming out to volunteer. We can use all the help we can get!

– Paul
