Steam Department Mid-Winter Update
Despite the Polar Vortex, work in the steam shop has continued unabated.
Our shop crews have been hard at work on 1630’s annual inspection.
Work on our auxiliary tender, which we are hoping to place in service this spring, has also continued.
Surface preparation on the tender is almost complete, and we are hoping to be able to begin painting in the coming weeks.
Our machinists and welders, meanwhile, have stayed busy working on projects to support Union Pacific 428’s eventual return to steam.
Although I do not have any pictures to prove it, work has also continued on the Shay. Following the successful steam test this fall, we are continuing to make minor improvements and we look forward to public operations this summer (dates will be announced on the IRM website once finalized).
As a reminder, you can also follow the steam shop on facebook at facebook.com/irmsteam.
