Workin' on the Whitcomb!

Click on each picture for a closer look!
After completing a period of winter maintenance on the two engines of TRHC #1, the Canadian Locomotive Company Whitcomb industrial switcher, a TRHA crew in roundhouse stalls 16 and 17 works to re-assemble the hood and doors of the rear engine. Built in 1950, the locomotive has two Cummins 150 hp six-cylinder diesel engines. As the engines are long obsolete, parts are a challenge to find. But these two engines continue to run well fifty-eight years after they were built.
