Work Day Report For
19th May 2012.
For this workday it was decided to work on the electrical system in PC2s cab,
Work on the roof panels of PC1.
Tidy up TC2 and work out what could be done.
My brother David comes to visit, he and his wife cleared the VIP back in 2000, he hasnt seen it finsihed.
Mr brothers wife passed away this time last year, so its fitting that he can now see the VIP back as it was.
The VIP lounge is dedicated to June Leadley.
Tim working on getting a 24 volt supply to some of the PC2's cab system.
Not an easy task, but Tim never says "NEVER".
Well, something is going to work today, I am sure of it!!!
The cab of PC2 in bits, it may work again, MAYBE.
Not so simple to work out, what is what.
The power selector in PC1.
The switching system below the panel.
We are trying to workout if we can use this to control a train simulator.
