While over 50 members and guests enjoyed the June Rochester Chapter NRHS general membership meeting at the Rochester & Genesee Valley Railroad Museum, our Master Electrician Jim Johnson hooked up the new batteries on Eastman Kodak Company 80-tonner #6. Here are two images of Jim at work and many thanks for a job well done.
R&GVRR Museum Master Electrician, Jim Johnson, hooks up the new batteries on EK#6. The locomotive has a 64-volt electrical system requiring eight 8-volt batteries hooked together in series to create the necessary power.
Another view of Jim hard at work making sure all the connection are properly made.
