LAST WEEKENDS SHOP ACTIVITY
Trailing truck wheels were shipped off for inspection and adding roller bearings. The boxes were also shipped out and will be fitted to match the bearings. The roller bearing axles had some oil samples taken which will go out for analysis this week. Checking what winds up in the oil gives us a picture of wear and potential future problems.
Next weekend we may take apart more of the trailing truck spring rigging and inspect for wear. DJ is threatening to do more work on the Wabash Caboose and the 358 is also scheduled for more attention. Plenty going on currently so stop by and put in some work. All members are welcome to come and lend a hand. Feel free to contact project managers with questions.

Hazard identification is the key to injury prevention. If you don’t see it you cannot control, avoid or mitigate it. As work progresses and other activities begin and /or end the hazards to you and others frequently change. You and others may be in harm’s way if one doesn’t remain alert to the changing surroundings.
Stay alert and you minimize the chances of yourself and others from being injured or worse.
SAFETY IS JOB 1
