Progress on SP2479 - June 27, 2009
Removed Valve Cage

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.
