With all due respect but...
 
I'm all for steam but please God don't tell me you guys actually put a fire in the Porter? Was it checked out by the feds? New tubes? Boiler ultra-sounded? Was it given a full 1472 day inspection and all necessary work to allow it to steam? If this was just a rainy day "Hey lets go fire up the Porter," I wouldn't trust those involved with this one with a Lionel O-gauge model let alone a LIRR G5. If this was the case, wait 'till the feds get a load of this one.  
 
I wouldn't trust a fire in in it's current condition and forget about 150 PSI in the boiler.
 
I think an explanation by the original poster is in order.

God no, we would never do that. I assure you there was no fire in the firebox. There was only hot water in the bolier.  
 
And belive it or not, even thought it is a train, the FRA does not need to know anything since it is not on the tracks nor will it be any time soon. All inspections with be preformed by the State of New York.
 
No need to worry before we even think about putting wood in, she will get much more work and many inpsections

Good Evening Ladies & Gentlemen,
 
It may of been Halloween today but the work did not stop at the Railroad Museum of Long Island in Riverhead. We got a a coat of Orange paint onto Former Long Island Railroad  Baywindow Caboose C-68. She has not gotten any TLC in a while, so I took on the project to repaint her.
 
She got one coat today, to cover up all her rust stops and get her ready for winter. In the spring after she has weatherd a little 2 more coats will be applied along with a coat on the roof. Then the detail work and lettering. She will be ready for 2010 museum patrons in late April, ready to tell her story as she has been for so many years, just in fresh as-deliverd paint.
 
We were also lucky enough to have a crew working on preparing our machine for paint.  
 
So much has gotten done this year, and it is all thanks to our volunteers! I don't think I have ever seen so much work go on at one time......3 Railroad Cars painted and a soon a building. Not bad if you ask me.
 
Anthony
