It is Saturday August 29th, Jeff Bennett and James Tarbet are installing new pedestal liners on the journal boxes of CTA locomotive MS65. Mike Gilles photo
The next day James was working to install the liners or shims on the east side of the locomotive.
He got one journal finished but was working on another that was being stubborn.
By Labor Day all the liners were in place and the locomotive was moved over to Track 3 South. The OB Form 5 coupler is evident that will allow MS65 to connect with any of our CTA all-electric cars like 43 up on Track 1.
After public operations on Labor Day where over Trainmaster Damin Keenan took a brief familiarization trip to Ward’s Bridge and back and now MS65 is heading back to Track 3 South at the car barn.
