    That shure looks like a late 3765 or 2900 class locomotive to me. Nice catch.

    Regards,

    It looks like your group hired a rail contractor to do most of the work?

    Those ties are a good example of what happens when there is no drainage. When originally built, I'd bet minimal work was done to the support structure, let alone much consideration to how long the spur would see use.

    Thanks again, for taking the time to post progress photos. Parts of a steam engine that I only knew as words, now have a visual identity thanks to your photos. From the massive engineering of the nearly scratchbuilt radial buffer, through what must be a numbing number of staybolt repairs to the most amazing photos of the crosshead guide and shoe. Have heard and ready about the 3776 and 2900 class roller bearing rods, but these are the first photos I have seen of the roller bearings from the inside. Really appreciate your efforts in this thread.

    Once again, thanks, Kevin, for keeping us informed of your great progress. Those ties are older than I am.

    I wonder what the "B" represents?

    Interesting, as always! And I really enjoyed the cactus flower. :)

    Thanks, Kevin. It just keeps getting closer and closer to running.

    Good thing the track work is done so the real work can resume! Excited to see the cylinders honed and the running gear being readied as well.

    Are you going to abandon current residence in NM?

    I was surprised to see the one photo, (in batch 6-21), of those two fellows measuring track gauge. Was there an actual problem with the work just done?

    We are about a year and a half from retirement, The plan is to move back north so we are closer to the rest of the family. (Both our families homesteaded in Idaho in the early 1800s.)

    Land is cheap, other residents distant, and I can get started on building a Ewing style monorail.
