Those wires are all the positive wires. There are 4 of them coming off the main Generator. We had to replace all 4 of them. You can't really tell by the pictures, but there was next to no room to get access to them. The people at the shop didn't even know how we were going to get to them.

It was a fun trip and a great experience.

Whoah!!! Where in MN did you end up? Twin Cities, Duluth, St. Cloud, Moorhead, or International Falls? Or am I a long ways off? Those are the only place I can think of in MN that would have a garage for locomotives.

So what happened to the 13 hr drive? That should have been 26hr OT minimum round trip. Was it closer than expected or did you make full use of that thar Hemi! ?

Well I get paid my regular pay if I am not over my 8 hours a day or 40 hours a week. So including driving I worked a total of 61 hours.
