Track Updates for April 4, 1999

John LaCosta    W ednesday (3/24)

     Warren Olt was Dispatcher with C Ben Bates, Charles Plantholt, James Robertson and Harry Gesser as crew for two tour groups.

     Saturday (4/3)

     Ed Amrhein, David Crow, Rick Obbink and I repaired the overhead trolley wire damage caused by the truck that backed into the line pole at the Highway Yard. While we were up that end of the line we also replaced five pull off insulators at 28th street loop.

     After lunch Dennis Yeager, David and I continued trimming the trees along the main line at 25th street.

     Sunday (4/4)

     Ed Amrhein was Dispatcher with Denis Falter and Carl Merson as crew. Given it was Easter Sunday, there were a nice number of visitors. The PCC was removed from service when on inspection it was noted that one of the torque arms on the front truck was broken. This arm helps keep the axle housing from rotating and keeps the axle spacing constant.
