Ray, we are all getting excited as school kids anticipating the coming of Christmas morning. I am so looking forward to seeing the boiler mated to the chassis.

A thing of beauty, Ray. Absolutely a thing of beauty. Your craftsmanship is beyond reproach.

Bobby, so am I.   I hope to have the welding finished in the next week.  All that is left,  front tube sheet , dry tubes, and 4 staybolts on the backhead. Thats not much.  Still alot of work to have it running, but I am going to try my best to have it running  in feb.  Not running in feb, does not seem like an option to me.   Greg thankyou,  I hope you can shovel some coal into  it in feb.

   Ray,
 
   That is some real nice work, for sure. Like Bobby, I can't wait to see that brute in one piece.

The welding around the firedoor  was completed today.  With the firedoor finished  I needed to move the boiler,  so my neighbor came over and helped me reposition the boiler.  I hope to start welding the front tube sheet in tomorrow.   This next set of pics will show todays progress.  Ray III

   Dear friend, does that thing take three men and a boy to move I can't believe how heavy it appears in the pics. I'm sure it is in real life too.
