Nope. I was there today and the 54 was still in the shop with it's axles dropped. But it should be operational before the big 4th of July weekend, if not Steamtown's in big trouble.

Apparently they're dropping the fourth axle out this week. The parts that lubricate the bearings are all worn out and need to be replaced, due to all the stress they and the bearings underwent.

Was at Steamtown today and the 3254 has 2 drive axles under it. I was talking with the shop crew and they do not know yet if the engine will be ready for the 4th of July Weekend. Just wait and see what happens.  The Journal boxes were on a machine today, a milling machine I believe and a mechanic was grinding away at the boxes. It's really a stressful time for the shop crew and another reason that the 2317 should have it tires replaced right away because Steamtown needs a backup engine. Recently, the 514 krapped out, problem with the fuel pump but luckily the engineer on the 2317 that day fixed the problem.

Was at Steamtown today and the 3254 has 3 axles under it with the 4th on the drop table being ready to be put back into place. Friday's excursion will be powered by 514 and a DL diesel from what I hear. Are you gonna be at Moscow station tommorow? Thats where I'm headed. The 54 should have all it's rods and everything on by tommorow and probally will power Sunday's excursion, not to sure, just have to wait and see. I'll be volunteering at Steamtown on saturday and will see if the 54 is ready.
