A peek at the truck
Repairing the wreck damage on one end of SN 1005 required removing that truck. Because of the considerable air, electrical, frame and coupler work required, the truck has been stored outside (under tarp) until recently. Now with that work complete, it is time to prepare the truck for service.
Here it is, brought into the shop, and behind it is a real treat - freshly painted Muni 1016!
Note the third rail pickup assembly has been removed from this side.
Birney 62 is not in the shop for repair. The shop is a temporary carbarn while a culvert is dug under the yard of Carbarn 1. The culvert will correct a drainage problem and allow restoration of the duck pond.
