Monon DS-50 Restoration Work Update

Update by Les Beckman
Feb 19, 2022




Made a VERY short visit to the Shop at HVRM today accompanied by my two sons, Doug and Glenn and grandson Graeme.  Found Todd Flanigan, Mark Belmonte and Tom Rainford hard at work in the cab of Monon SW1 diesel # DS-50, working on the removal of the electrical board.  This evening, Tom was kind enough to send me a couple of photos and let me know that their efforts to remove the board from the unit, were ultimately successful.

Much more still to do, but we're getting there!
