Prepping for Ultrasounding the Boiler Barrel
Hans Brandes finishes chalking lines on the steam dome saddle of ex B&SR #7 during a work session in April of 2008. Between Hans, Bill Piche, and George Collard, the boiler barrel, steam dome, and throat sheet were ultrasounded and the readings recorded in one day.
This is part of the work being done by the Maine Narrow Gauge Muesum to bring #7 up to FRA Form 4 requirements.
#7 is in the middle of extensive restoration to her boiler, and the museum hopes to have her back in steam by late 2009 or early 2010. For more information, please visit http://www.mngrr.org/engine7.html and follow the progress in our work session reports.
