Wheel Sets Removed From Arnold

I stopped by the engine house Saturday for the first time since I returned from vacation. My visit only lasted 1-1/2 hours. Keith and I were heading to Yerington, Nevada to pick up a 1941 Dodge military Power Wagon.

Over the work day of Saturday, August 5, 2006, Eric, Keith and Garrett removed the wheel sets for Arnold Z, the El Dorado Western Railway's Plymouth switch engine. Both wheel sets were placed behind the locomotive (to the left of the photograph).

Scott had "planned on getting those two journal boxes off" the wheel set Saturday. Several sick volunteers and other projects in progress left Scott with nothing to do but clean the Plymouth.

The journal box on the left. The other pair of journal boxes were removed last April. The puller sits on the ground between the wheel sets.
