Additonal Traction Motors Installed on GP-9 1741 on November 19th


On November 19th  Overall Crane Services assisted with lifting 72/1741 to install the remaining two traction motors. Club members and CSRR employees Eric Grover, Adam Bartley, Ryan Fothergill, Cory Fothergill, Wayne Allen, George and Jordan Small helped assemble two traction motor combos and installed them into the front truck of 72/1741. Also, a center bowl liner and a set of springs were replaced at the same time. The locomotive will now have brake rigging reinstalled and traction motor leads reconnected as well as some other minor electrical work before it can be tested.
