Any  possibility of a conduit under the tracks there for provision of a magphone inside?
Thanks!

You could always simply route it thru the turtle by-pass.  I am sure they wouldn't mind.

The turtles wouldn't mind, but what about the Turtle Lady?

I take it that this ramp will replace the one at the SS platform?

A comparison of 53's 1940's electrical schematic and the current wiring was made in an attempt to clarify what changes may have been made over the past 80 years.  It was discovered that a couple of resistor banks had been removed for reasons yet unknown.  Some wiring has been terminated and some additional wiring has also been added.  The fun begins.

Sounds like you've found an electrical rabbit hole.

A mutual friend of Stewart and I suggested checking with the Maryland & Pennsylvania Preservation Society. They are restoring a GE 45 tonner.

There is a reprint of an operator's manual for a GE 45 tonner on Ebay

Not sure if this is what you're looking for.

Checking the CC&V site, one mallet is an O&K, the other a Bagnall.

I believe there is a similar mallet at the Cripple Creek & Victor in Colorado.
