Hello everyone:

Work continues on 358 at a steady pace, this upcoming weekend will be short but focused. Might only be one or two guys out on Friday, the rest of us married folk will likely be with our respective wives for Valentine’s Day.

Saturday though, we’ll finish up the high voltage lug crimping for sure. Other tasks include:

1. Drill and tap out the one bolt for the hatch cover over the electrical cabinet on the roof.
2. Drill and tap the broken bolts for front TM blower duct mounts
3. Weld new threaded studs for TM # 3 under locomotive, ahead of fuel tank. Old studs broke off.

If more help shows up, we’ll find things to do. But the crimping work is # 1 priority.

Let me know if you’ll be out any this weekend to work on 358.
