1741 Welding and Power Assembly Work on June 22-23

Wayne Allen, Ryan and Cory Fothergill performed more work on 1741 this weekend. Ryan continued welding in the frame sill and angle-iron for the battery boxes . Wayne and Cory disassembled power assemblies 5 and 16 due to low compression. Both pistons had broken rings and the liners were badly scratched. New liners will be installed, new rings and head assemblies as well. This will help to improve the oil consumption on the locomotive , and improve its lifespan. More for another week!
