We’ve posted a progress report for work performed on 2100 this year. Click here to read the full report.
Here are a few details:
- 2100’s stoker has been returned to the 2100 restoration facility, has been tested and found to be ready for service upon reinstallation in the tender.
- Completion of firebox ultrasound examination and engineering analysis. Stay tuned for our next major announcement regarding this work.
- The final stage of the mechanical evaluation of the 2100’s tender and running gear has been completed.
The American Steam Railroad Preservation Association is proud to present our 2016 year in review. We’ve accomplished a lot in 2016 and we’re quite proud of how far we’ve come. We’ve still got a long way to go with Reading Company no. 2100 and Frisco Mikado no. 1352, but with your support, we can bring these steam locomotives back to life and get them back to what they’re supposed to be doing…Hauling trains.
Here’s an update on the work performed so far:
In 2015, Lionel teamed with the American Steam Railroad (ASR) to create new measurements and documentation for their new Reading T-1 models.
Featured on pages 42 and 43 of Lionel’s new catalog, model railroads everywhere can own Reading no. 2100 as part of Lionel’s LEGACY STEAM product line.
“Two mighty Northerns grace the catalog this year, starting with the Reading T1. Lionel is working with the American Steam Railroad to ensure the accuracy of this completely retooled model – now available for the first time with LEGACY and Whistle Steam.”
