The following information was sent by
Tom Steed, Mid Hudson (NY) Cable Maintenance:
"The Splicer's Trailer is commonly know as a Tool Cart. The center fold down
door in the middle became a work bench which we prepared lead sleeves to be
"lead wiped" and create an airtight splice enclosure. Underground cables are
pressurized to trigger an alarm if a leak develops."
