Great work and team effort! Wish I lived closer to participate or just visit IRM. Nect to Seashore Trolley, my two favorite places to be!

For those of use not conversant with the ins and outs of trolley buses, what is a drag link?

Sorry about that. Basically it is a long, bent pipe that transfers the turning of the steering wheel to the front wheels.

Does this mean both Chicago Marmons will be available for service?

That is the goal. We still need to repair the other drag link and reinstall it. There are also a couple engines being temporarily stored at the door of the Hoffman Garage blocking all the coaches in. Even when they are relocated, the absence of overhead in that garage makes moving coaches around very challenging. Of course we will need to do a thorough inspection before putting 9631 back into service as it hasn't operated in several years.
