OERM Signal Activities - Sept 23 (Sat. only)

Mapes Grade Crossing rebuild ----
1.) Wire for under street conduit from A-case to B-case did not arrive from supplier so we searched "out-back" for suitable replacement but none found. Plan is to get crossing operational using previous overhead wires across Mapes and add the new underground wire in later.
2.) Wire from B-case to L-Gate terminated and connected at both ends.
3.) Wire (4 #6s) pulled into conduit from Battery Box to B-case -- 10 VDC and 16 VDC.
4.) New terminal strips added in B-case.
5.) Following still needs to be done to get crossing fully operational -- new battery wires terminated and connected, pull in track wires at both north and south track island points (conduit already in place), terminate track wires, install & connect charger.
6.) Mapes Signals must be fully operational before Thomas.

MoW Bucket Truck repair ----
1.) Rebolt bracket for front right leaf springs.
2.) Replace locks for doors and ignition switch.
3.) Pulled valve cover and rocker assembly for inspection -- looks clean.
4.) Inspection of boom shows fiberglass degradation is just cosmetic -- entire boom is steel. Appears fiberglas was added as insulation for high voltage protection.
5.) Hydraulic pump was separate and is missing -- Mike's plan is to try and add transfer pump to transmission rather than a belt driven pump or a stand-alone pump.
6.) Inspection shows missing cooling inlet/thermostat cover and bypass.
7.) Previously pulled pan --- inspection shows 2 spun crank/rod bearings but otherwise clean.
