Preparing the CLC Whitcomb for its new engine!
Click on each image for a closer look!
Our operational CLC Whitcomb 50 ton Switcher #1 is the workhorse of our operation. This winter we are replacing one of the two engines with a new one.
Saturday saw our work team spending the entire day working on #1. The front engine bay was cleaned and stripped clear ready for the new engine. The entire radiator assembly has also been removed. We hope to restore the shutters to operability as part of this process.
