A Closer Look – A closer look of the bearing sitting in the chuck of the museum’s metal lathe. This is the first of four bearings that need to be machined from raw stock.

Machining New Bearings – R&GVRRM volunteer, Kevin Klees, works on machining new thrust bearings for the rear axle of the museum’s Plymouth Model BL gas mechanical locomotive.
Covering Up – Eastman Kodak Company GE 80-tonner #6 is one of the Museum’s winter workhorses. To start the engine in the winter, a block heater is used. To make that heater work more efficiently and to allow the engine to heat up faster, a new radiator cover was installed on this day by museum volunteer Chris Hauf in preparation for winter operations.
