Southern Pacific #18 update – September 2018

Labor Day weekend brought us together to complete the smoke box repairs and get the #18 ready for operation in October. Thanks to everyone’s hard work we we’re able to get all of the repairs competed and a successful hydro performed on the #18.

In addition to having the #18 ready to steam up, boxcar #15 also received some significant work. Some of what was done included: repacking the journals with new waste, greasing the air piston, re lapping the triple valve, repairing the angle cock valves and thoroughly cleaning the interior of the car. Our goal is to be able to use the #15 during our October steam up.

As a reminder, come join us Friday October 5th for a day of operations followed by a world famous trash can tri-tip dinner.

Dinner is $15

Cab rides are a $20 donation
