Progress on SP2479 - June 27, 2009
The warmer temperatures probably kept most workers away today, but
the very small crew did completed a significant task. Today, we completed
extraction of the damaged front left valve cage. The objective was to remove
the cage without any additional damage. It was not a simple task. Several
small modifications were made to the set up completed last week. After
better then an hour of wrenching, the cage was clear of the cylinder. Well done
to all that helped with this task. If you are interested in details of this task,
visit the restoration site on a Saturday.
Clean up of SP 1215 continues on Tuesdays. Workers are now focusing on the right
side of the locomotive, but there are a number of items to address on the left side.
