While operations began last weekend, worked continued on maintaining operating fleet. Kelly, Wil, and Rex cared for car 355. Galen helped as well, replacing a defective brush holder in the compressor. Locomotive 18 was placed back in front of the shop where we hope to have time to work on it again soon.
Yesterday, we were happy to see Julia Saari-Franks and Christopher Franks, current participants in the Trolley Care Program. They helped Kelly maintain cars 4 and 16, finishing the spring maintenance for the operating fleet. They then moved on to scraping paint on 169 while Kelly continued cleaning up 3001's east end controller. With spring weather arriving, we're all glad to be back out in the shop.
John has begun planning the year's work for 3001. Fred and Bruce continue to clean up seat bases for the car. John and Kelly also discussed potential other projects for the year, including some much needed floor painting for operating fleet.
