It’s been pretty steamy down at the steam shop with all the elevated temperatures and welding. We hope you’re staying cool!

Marshal and Brian have continued the steady work on the staybolt holes and Tim is back in the Tender needle scaling.  Marshal has installed a temporary walking board, as they should begin to work on the top wrapper sheet this week.


The new piece of the throat sheet has finally been installed and it was quite the beast to get in! The fit was perfect.

Joe has been on the engine lathe fabricating the bushings for the washout plugs.

  1. I know all the work you’re doing is long, hard, and hot especially in this hot weather. From this railfan’s point of view. I can’t say THANK YOU enough. I am patiently waiting for the return of 1702, because I will then come to ride behind her in an open air car, and say thank you to you in person.

  2. Hey GSMR crew, once 1702 is restored will yall start rebuilding 722?
