February 2020 – Fire Up 2100 Restoration Update

By March 6, 2020 March 12th, 2020 Media, News, Video

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

  • The first test samples of the 560 staybolts needed for the firebox were forged and machined.
  • Metal brackets in the tender that held in the fuel oil tank were removed, and surfaces cleaned.
  • The stoker feed screw had its fins renewed with welding material, and was finished to a good profile to renew the screw.
  • Items were removed from above and below the cab floor, so a new cab floor can be fabricated that will allow space for the stoker feed and grate shaker bars.
