RVSC Switcher

RVSC Switcher

This Switcher 1233 is out of service. According to the Diesel Mechs the wiring has to be redone. Also the exhaust pipes were left uncovered so water got in for a good while. The engine will have to be repacked. Once done, it will see service on the line
Unless traffic were to increase, there's enough power to handle the current workload. It was a solid performer from 1993 to 1998 with geep 1705. It racked up a guestimate of 780 round trips (5 yrs) of a minimum of 100 miles per round trip...78,000 miles. Started 3 wildfires near La Feria whoops.
