RGS #20 update

April 14, 2014 08:04AM avatar
Sorry it has been a while since the last post. The tender tank is ready for riveting. All rivets were made from #20's old staybolts so they will drive well. Just waiting for manpower at this point.

Ron has been steadily working on the lead truck which has been quite a project. Normally you have a starting point on something like this, but in #20's case, her lead truck was caddywhumpus in the extreme. Regardless, we managed to make repairs and get the thing trammed and it looks like the end is in sight.

Joe and Brendan got the smokebox front installed and Erich is working on the driving axles.

Tender ready for riveting

Head scratching time trying to align the frame and decide what to do with the minimal amount of damage and work and still get it right.

Frame after lots of work. It is basically ready for assembly at this point.

Bistle post ready to install once the hangers are finished.

Axles complete.
