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."

Also, check out the Splicer Trailer that was restored by former Bell Canada employee, T.J. Logie.  click HERE to view the Splicer Trailer.
