A look back (2012) – New batteries for ABN2194

The old lead acid batteries on crew car ABN2194 had failed, and a set of replacement cells were sourced for this car. With the battery box cleared out, timber crates were manufactured, new cells were fitted, and the water was topped up too.


Before the lights were tested in the workshop.


Then they were tested out on the mainline on a return trip to Goulburn.

Battery voltage and charging current were measured during the trip to evaluate its performance.
