CCW delivers trams to Washington state

Posted on November 4, 2008

[IMAGE]CCWParkFull.jpg[/IMAGE] Complete Coach Works (CCW) delivered the first two of three renovated trams for the Northwest Trek Wildlife Park just outside of Eatonville, Wash.

The contract consisted of remanufacturing nearly every aspect of the more than 34-year-old trams used for daily route tours around the wildlife park. The trams all have new power packs with Cummins 5.9 liter in-line 6-cylinder propane engines.

In addition, every tram includes industry state-of-the-art electrical multiplexing systems to replace the wiring system. The entire process in rebuilding these trams was so extensive that the chassis remained one of the few original parts.
