Here are a couple of pics  of the firemans side.  I have had almost no time in the shop lately, and progress has been very slow.   The pics show the guide bars removed so I could make new shims and  open the holes a bit to allow for a little lateral adjustment.   Ray III

The mike is  back together, and once again, it is sitting next to the raritan in the back of my truck, all of the cars are loaded , and I will  leave in a few hours.   This has become one of my favorite weeks of the year. See you all soon.  Ray III

Bobby, no progress to report.  The  CN has decided we were not running far enough , and now have us learning the track all the way to memphis .  Which doubles  the length of my run. In a ddition to that , our coal trains have grown fron 115 and  120 to an amazing  150.   The  115 weighed in at  about 16000 tons and the  150 are  21,400 tons and  8300 ft long.  This has left very little time at home and  0 time for cab building.  The cab is the next project, and I will post  pics as soon  I  get time to work on it.  Ray III

Bill,
 
 I had the pleasure of visiting with Ray last weekend and the subject of piston rings came up. After hearing how well teflon rings worked in Ray's engine I'd like to give them a try but can't locate them in the Grainger catalog. Could you  give me a part number or catalog page number?
 
Thanks, Steve

Hi Ray -  
 
I've been watching your boiler build for years.  I liked the start of the hopper building thread.  Any chance you will continue with that thread ?
 
Thanks for sharing your boiler building experiences.

Ray,
 
We just went thru a similar process on maybe the same engine in Maryland.
This engine locked up on it's second trip around the CALS track.
The owner decided to replace the brass liners with cast iron liners
and proper cast iron rings. This process took several months
off and on. I can post some photos and the process if anyone is interested.

This picture shows the final result of the overhaul.
