A pair of trucks with motors arrive which will be used to power 2651 on a flatbed tow truck. Photo courtesy of Rick Glosser.

The slow task of off loading the trucks has begun. It would appear that they should just simply roll off the flat bed at that angle but it certainly took a little effort to get them to them down the ramp. Photo courtesy of Rick Glosser.

A combination of gravity and chain/man power eventually get the truck moving in the right direction as what appears to be NS 11J rolls by. Photo courtesy of Rick Glosser.

The west end truck has landed and is now being slowly moved west to make room for the east end truck. Photo courtesy of Rick Glosser.

Not too bad for a mornings worth of work. Here you see both trucks seated outside of the Phillipsburg Railroad Historians engine house as 2651 looks on. Photo courtesy of Rick Glosser.

The east end truck rests comfortably on the rail. These two trucks and the motors will become one of NJERHS' next projects to eventually get 2651 running on her own. Photo courtesy of Rick Glosser.
