Weekend Report - Part 2 - Commissioning the Simulator Control Stands

Click on each image for a closer look!
Continuing with our coverage of the weekend work party activities, we find a group of volunteers assembled to plan the day's work at the upper left. In the middle photo above, we find that the meeting/dining tables and chairs have been relocated to the three stalls from the machine shop to become part of our "crew's quarters". In the photo at the upper right we find the Romulus steam locomotive conveniently parked on the scissors lift as it continued to be worked on over the weekend.
In the left hand photo below, we find one of the diesel cab simulator control stands with its newly fitted brake assemblies on the the left hand side. We machined these from a set of castings which we had made from master patterns. This past weekend, Bill Kaufman, from whom we acquired the U33C Cab and the refurbished control stands, visited the roundhouse to commission them into production. He can be seen doing just that in the middle photo below. In the photo at the lower right, work continued on installing the window frames in the U33C cab as well with two of the five frames being completed this past weekend.
