||Starting the Alco
||Another trip to Canada, this time to look at C424s on the Hudson Bay Rwy. 602 was our target, and here my business partner Maynard Porter and the head mechanic are working on starting her for the first time in a couple of months. 602 is hooked to jumper cables from the set of power on the next track. After many attempts, we figured out the low water switch was stuck, and the unit wouldn't start as a result. They guys are jumper-cabling around the lead from the switch, and 602 started right after this. UPDATE note: Maynard passed away unexpectedly Dec 6, 2015. RIP my friend, may all the Alcos run well for you in heaven.
