The CTRC (Steam team) weekday crew (Larry M, Denis M and John E) has started the stabilization of SP1215 exterior. This work was started the week of May 18, 2009.
The plan is to complete stabilization of the side exposed to the HSJ parking lot first then complete the otherside of the locomotive. We plan on reinstalling the piping, hand rails, and other items which were removed when the engine was move to San Jose from Portola California. In addition the cab will be weather proofed and the rest of the locomotive will be weatherized.
