The Johnson Silent Drive Compressor now has a belt!

A new flat-belt drive has been installed on the historic Johnson Silent Drive Compressor which we unearthed in union Station. This would originally have been a leather drive belt but until a source has been located for a new one a modern Megadyne synthetic belt has been substituted.
Also, the compressor system's base has been repainted. There was no original paint left to restore so refinishing was the only option.
