NNG - Restoration of ex-SR #4501 moving along (pics)

February 27, 2014 08:07PM avatar
Hi, all -

My good friend Al Phillips of the Tennessee Valley Railway Museum recently sent me a
few photos taken earlier this month by his co-worker Mike Ray on the occasion of #4501
being moved outside the shop for the first time in years and re-coupled to her tender.  Un-
less my ancient eyes deceive me, that's "Uncle Al" standing at the rear corner of the tender
in this first photo:

Note the addition of a Worthington feedwater heater at the top of the smokebox; the hot water pump is mounted below.  Another improvement is the addition of a stoker - the heads of the stoker engine's cylinders can be seen below the cab, still in red primer.

Per Al, there will be a steam test "soon" ...

p.s.  For a few more photos of #4501, taken during my visit with Al just one year ago, see [ngdiscussion.net] and [ngdiscussion.net].   And for a much better photo of a much younger Al, see [ngdiscussion.net].
