Friday Night Lights

August 17, 2007

With trolley operations throughout the weekends, maintenance on the trolley overhead has to be squeezed in whenever possible. Tonight, volunteers assisted by the M-25 Diesel and the one of a kind Aerial Bucket Car, seize the opportunity and get fresh bulbs into the light clusters around the museum area.

Diesel-Powered Christmas Gift

Our M25 diesel locomotive is a very useful piece of equipment. It does have one drawback, in that its engine (a Cummins HBI-600) is obsolete and parts are hard to find and expensive. We were therefore quite pleased when McHugh Locomotive & Crane of Fairless Hills, PA, arranged for us to receive an RTO engine from a locomotive it was rebuilding. This spare should help keep the M25 a viable piece of equipment for us for many years to come.

M25 spare engine now resides in our Car Barn 2 parts warehouse.
