Electrical Work on the Cargill

Johnson Electric Motor was the contractor hired by Cargill to complete the wiring. The traction motors are all repaired, and work is being done on the cab wiring which was also damaged.

The painting was completed in early November. Hopefully by the end of 2011 the museum will have a completely operational locomotive.

As a side note, the locomotive was moved to make way for Union Paciifc's heritage fleet when the 844 visited last month on the way back to Cheyenne. Below is a picture of the SW1 in its natural habitat. She stayed there only a few days before being moved back to her spot on Track 2 in front of the shop.
