The machine made it to MA and is sitting in secure storage at Dean's house. We hope to give the machine a PM and general going over before I can make it back up to Maine in a couple weeks. Also have to fix my trailer brakes, it's a long ride from PA without working trailer brakes and questionable tow vehicles brakes.

Tank update, the interior of the fireman's side was needle scaled where needed and ground to clean metal around the bolts holes. New pieces of angle iron were cut and drilled to replace the original coal bunker board brackets that were badly corroded. The fireman's side water sump was bolted back on and the bolts were tack welded into position inside the tank. All of the bolts through the tank will be fully welded on the inside to become studs so when the inside of the tank is coated there will be no breaks in the coating. A start was made on brackets to reinforce the coal bunker extensions on top of the tank. In most places around the top of the tank the piece of T angle the extensions are riveted to is corroded away.

Found under the recently removed clapboards at Sheepscot. The plan to head to Canada is well documented but the proposed connection to the Perus Pirapora Railroad in Brazil was not known until the recent renovations at Sheepscot.

Monday 4/15 a casting to reinforce the fireman's side cylinder was epoxied in place. The casting and cylinder had to be sandblasted down to clean metal where the epoxy was placed. The epoxy is to fill the voids between the castings, mechanical fastners will also be installed.
