Athearn C44-9W Rebuild with NorthWest Shortline Can Motor
NWSL Wheelsets also
This next restoration is an Athearn C44-9W that I got "for parts or repair."
It has a NorthWest Shortline 163-4 Can motor and some NWSL replacement wheels. It wasn't a successful conversion and the person who had gave up and stripped some usable parts and then sold it to me.
Confidence is high that we can rebuild it.
This is part 1 where we break down the trucks and get everything apart.
