Bucket Truck Repaired

Thanks to John Gasper and Aaron Mangan, the museum's bucket truck is now operational.  Sunday, I helped them lift the hydraulic cylinders in place and pin them in.  It was more work than we initially thought because they location of the boom required the cylinders to be extended out.  We had to get the cylinders just right and even still it was a pain because the bushings needed to be cleaned up as well.  Finally just after noon, we were able to get the truck together.

In other news, bus 3001 in the Bus Museum is now running after we changed out the batteries.  It still needs to be cleaned up and other repairs made to it, however, we know that it runs!
