Monon DS-50 Restoration Work Update

Update by Les Beckman
Feb 12, 2022

A very cold day in North Judson today but the wood stove in the West Annex of the shop building, kept things comfortable.

HVRM member Tom Rainford pounding out a slight bow in a metal step from the stepwell leading in to the SW1's cab.

The engineers side of the cab after the complete removal of the wood floor.
Note the round hole where the control stand sat.

This shows the center portion of the cab looking toward the electrical cabinet.

Here we see Mark Belmonte (at left) and David Miller, starting their effort to remove the steel electrical cabinet.

The work to remove the cabinet, was successful.

Here is the electrical cabinet and the control stand, sitting on the floor of the museum's Shop.
