Lights and Action

Saturday was shorter than usual for me due to other activities, but I started testing the electrical systems on the 451.  The MG set looks good and turns easily, and both commutators meggered good.  The control system needs battery power to activate it, and I ran out of time before I could test it.

I borrowed a battery charger and started charging.  This seems to be going well, but more charging needs to be done next time.  I was able to install new light bulbs and test the lights.

Meanwhile, things are getting set up for Happy Holidays Railway.

And as usual, there was lots more going on.
