JOHN'S PHOTOS FOR THE WEEK

For my section this week, I have some photos from the USS Nautilus Museum in Groton, CT. If anyone is ever in the area, it's a really nice take in. And, admission to the Submarine Force Museum and USS Nautilus are free. Who knows where Johnny G will end up next.

Also, Stoneham Firefighter Dan Kelleher is running the New York City Marathon for the Muscular Dystrophy Assciation. He is selling raffle tickets as part of the fundraising. The cost is $5 per ticket and the winner receives $300 in scratch tickets. To purchase raffle tickets, you can call or text Dan at 781-775-5933.

I am always looking for photos of old Stoneham (Mass) apparatus, incidents or members for my personal collection if anyone can help. A digital scan is perfectly fine, I don't need an original as long as the scan is big enough to print out. I also can scan photos, slides and negatives and then give them back to you if that is easier. CLICK FOR EMAIL.

RAILROAD PHOTOS





Awesome scenic photo by Mr. Knapp.


Nordco Tie Remover/Inserter Model “TRIPP”:
The TRIPP is designed to handle all wood, as well as wood composite, ties. In addition, optional concrete grippers are available to convert the TRIPP to handle concrete ties. 82-inch-stroke-length workheads allow the operator to perform removal/insertions from either side of the track, allowing greater control in obstructed or constricted areas; the operator can also access the cab from either side of the machine. The gripper force for the tie gripper assembly can be adjusted for the following:
1. Different tie types
2. Tie degradation (to prevent further tie disintegration during removal)
3. Tie insertion (to prevent damage to new ties)


Norfolk Southern 9233.
