Track Updates for June 27, 1999

John LaCosta    W ednesday (6/23)

     Ben Bates was Dispatcher with TBD as crew for a morning charter

     I was off from my regular work, so I started to repair a damaged trolley hook on 1164. Once this was repaired, I started to wire 3828's borrowed truck to 1164. Ed Amrhein joined be just after lunch and together we finished wiring the car, connecting the brake rigging, lubricate the truck slides and washing the floor of the car.

     Next was to test the car and se if it would run. As is my luck, the new motor ran backwards to the original. Fortunately this is a simple fix, we reversed two wires and both motors ran in the same direction.

     Saturday (6/26)

     Buster Hughes, Carl Merson, Mark Dawson, Justin Thilman, Nathan Collinson-Streng spent the morning washing and cleaning both 6119 and 7407. By new these cars looked great.

     I was Dispatcher with Dennis Falter and Buster Hughes as crew and Nathan Collinson-Streng helped as cashier. 1184 made two non-revenue runs and seemed to work just fine.

     Sunday (6/27)

     Dan Lawrence was Dispatcher with Rick Williams and Carl Thistel as crew.
