The winter season hasn’t slowed down the restoration process thanks to the fantastic inside working space that the new steam shop has provided. In all elements of weather that we have had, our guys have steadily continued………to weld! That’s right, 3 months later and the tedious process of welding is still in action. In fact a rough estimate of over 300lbs of rods have been used during the stay bolts welding work.
There is a light at the end of this tunnel as the shop estimates only a few more weeks are left in this phase. Already the crosshead is beginning to be cleaned and polished for the next phase of work! Stay tuned for photos to come!
