R179 3240 Being Unloaded at the 207th Street Yard - 4/16/19

Recommended Posts

I went back to 207th Street with my friend, and this time I was actually able to witness them taking 3240 off of its trailer. I also was able to get some cool photos of the underbody and components on 3239. Enjoy!

View under the carbody. It looks like this pipe went into the brake valve relay 9cRYLUQ.jpg

Main switch box?


Self-explanatory: battery breaker box (battery is off to the right)csLdm5o.jpg

This had the caution symbols for heat and high voltage, I believe. My guess is some sort of heatsink for electrical components Xloosha.jpg

Sorry for the blur, but this is the valve relays ITWz5sB.jpg

Looking at what's above the truck - that black arm-like truss seems like it's part of the suspensionumjsXTL.jpg

Thank you! It was really cool to be able to get a look under the car and see all that's going on in person
