On Saturday, April 15, Dwight Maxey and Paul Brown got things going at the Museum by starting up the Trackmobile and retrieving the C&W Caboose #3 “Bunny Hutch” from the display area and putting it back in the regular trainset. This was a laid back operation that took most of the morning.
We broke for lunch, and Colin Mellin joined us for some work in the afternoon. We checked dimensions of the unitized locomotive batteries that we have, and checked that they will fit in the battery boxes on Locomotive 103. We then installed the new windshield wiper blades onto Locomotives 104 and 102. A couple of other miscellaneous tasks were completed before wrapping up for the day.
I have included a few photos of the day’s work.
