November 2019 Restoration Update

American Steam Railroad’s Forrest Nace explains all the work done in our latest video update. Highlights include:

-On both sides of the firebox, measurements were taken of the area between the side sheets. This will allow us to cut the material needed for the 554 staybolts.
-Old grease and oil were removed from the crosshead guide, along with the still connected rod linkage cleaned and polished.
-Work continued on repairing the stoker auger. Weld was applied to areas where there was thin or worn out material.
