Work Day Report For

16th June 2012.

This weekend was a Cab-It weekend, so the team opened up the train to the public.

PC2s cab and engine room was opened up for the public to inspect.

Two sub projects were started this weekend also :-

1. Inspect the electrics for the gas turbines and starter motors.

2. Remove the control system from PC1, to enable the cab simulator to be started work on.

E Train open at the start of the day.

The battery connectors in the rear of PC2.


Tim, inspecting the starter on Turbine 3 for signes of life.

Sadly, a main powerfeed has been cut so juice doens flow down the train :-(


During the lunchtime lull, this is what happens when you put 24 volt to the starter... (Dont tell the NRM), turn the sound up.

Just add fuel and get the starter to trip over................SCARY!!!
