Nice Z...missed ya this past weekend, we operated and did some maintenance too

 

Got a vid of me operating as well...its up on Youtube might link it later, but it wasn't filmed over my shoulder so you can't see the track unfortunately...will try and get a better version next time perhaps, depends on what equipment they take up the line whether or not I'll be able to do that or not.

Very nice vid, that was a fun day! I hope that in May when I come home from Albany, they have R17 6688 fixed. That SMEE is my favorite to operate.

That day was fun. I'll never forget that day. Me, Zach, Matted, SubwayGuy & Adam all operated that afternoon. Hey P, you definitely have to go. Heck, everyone should make at least one visit up there.

 

Where is Adam at anyway? Tell him to get his butt in here and register Drew!!

Next summer we need to pick one RT weekend to go up. Get everyone to take turns operating and what not, it would be lots of fun.

Actually took a look at the storage batteries on 6688 with Jeff last weekend. That car was in good shape aside from that. One of the three battery racks was dead so we were going to change out the bad cells, but there were about 5-7 of the 9 dead in that rack so we decided we will have to change out the whole rack b/c it will be easier than disassembling/reassembling the rack...and of course then it got dark. I'm hoping to make it up in Sept sometime to finish the job with Jeff, and who knows, perhaps the car will be even ready for the RT weekend later that month. The other two battery racks were good.

 

As for R9 1689, that car is not in too good of shape right now...don't know too many details as of now but it had a grounded motor armature, so one of the main DC traction motors needs to be replaced as well as a grid pack. They have a spare but it's goign to be a big job, and that car may need a new battery rack as well when its all said and done.

Haha...I've been all over him about that. Mentioned the site to him numerous times. Pablo, you remember James from the Philly trip right? Got him to register, he's my one referral, still trying to get Adam on board as my 2nd :cool::cool::cool:

The reason I kept looking over my shoulder towards the end was there was a fire in someone's attic near us, I looked across the river to see if I could see it but it turned out it was back over by the barns..
