Keolis in-house overhaul

Postby Mbtagp40mc » Wed Dec 06, 2017 9:41 pm

I’m just curious, what does this in-house overhaul entail? I just saw 1051 in Needham. I was first in line at the railroad crossing at Needham Heights Station and it passed me. As it was approaching, I heard an E-Bell and a K5LA that sounded like an HSP-46. But as I saw it, to my delight, it was 1051.

I’m assuming the horn and bell were swapped during the overhaul, but were there any improvements to prime mover, HEP generator, etc or structural improvements? Still looked rusty as hell.

I guess 1033 has an ebell now as well.
