Work Session for November 8 is CANCELLED

Dear Volunteers and Friends:

I am sorry for the relatively late notice, but tomorrow's Maintenance Department Work Session is cancelled.  The parts delivery is being rescheduled for a later date.

However, the scheduled work session for November 15 will proceed as scheduled and help is still needed.

I will be at home this weekend overhauling the pneumatic door engines for JTC #311.

Thank you for your support of Rockhill Trolley Museum.  I hope to see you November 15.

Best wishes,
Matt Nawn

Upcoming Rockhill Trolley Museum Car Maintenance Work Sessions

Dear Volunteers and Friends:

Your help is needed for two upcoming Car Maintenance Work Sessions.  This is an important time of year for Car Maintenance as we are fast approaching the Holiday Events when our cars see their heaviest service of the operating year.

Saturday, November 8:
Focus for this session is reorganizing the spare parts stored in Carbarn 2.  We are long overdue for this work and we will be taking delivery around noon of a donation of several pallets of spare parts.  Many hands make light work!  I will be onsite around 8AM to start the work.

Saturday, November 15:
This is our final maintenance scheduled maintenance session before the Holiday Season begins.  This is our annual governor servicing session for cars 163, 355, 172, and 249, as well as a time to give each car a check of all bearings including the journal and side bearings.  We have kept up on controller and pole maintenance throughout the year but this final push is necessary.  Session will start around 8AM. 

New volunteers are always welcome - please feel free to contact me in advance to discuss further.  Thank you for your volunteer dedication and support.


Best wishes,
Matt Nawn
