SP2479 Status - September 15, 2009

J Ezovski

Work on SP 2479 is moving slowly forward.  Over the past several weeks, tire clips for the new tire on #2 right driver were manufactured.  A rubber cup for the locomotive's left brake cylinder was received and installed.  The rubber cup that was in the cylinder was damage as a result of water collecting on the non-pressure side of the cylinder.  The brake cylinder was installed back on to the locomotive and brake levers attached.

Precise measurements of the locomotives rods and pins are now being obtained.  Once complete, rod bushing material can be ordered.
