1055 taking on electrons

The other day, 1055 was being charged up for a possible return to service this summer as a back-up locomotive. I ran into the current operations manager while I was there, and he assured me that he is in fact an ALCO fan. (I like this guy!)

At any rate, this could mean that 1055's troublesome recharge circuitry might be soon taken care of...

Looks to me like the old switcher has about 8 of these large lead acid cells...(4 on the engineer's side and 4 on the conductor's)
