WINTER CHALLENGES THE WIRE DEPARTMENT.

Ice and sleet can interfere with good operation, even if it doesn't bring down the catenary.


This photo, from mid-day Saturday last, shows a wire crew on the East Troy Electric Railroad at work near Army Lake siding.  Line car D-23 began service in 1907 as a flat-car work motor.  It was rebuilt at the Cold Spring Shops into its current form in 1929.
