As some of you know, the 1915 Baldwin 2-8-2 Mikado of the YWRR has not run for the past couple of years due to a host of problems. Those problems have been pretty much taken care of to date, and the old locomotive has been undergoing renovation to her boiler to bring her up to FRA standards. We expect FRA certification by the end of March. In addition to the boiler work, a team will start working on the bearings on the Main Rods and Side Rods early in April. Then the real work begins to install the lagging, plumbing, boiler barrel skin .. etc. We are hoping to have her up and running by the 6th of June, but there's so much work to be done that we need volunteers to help. We need help, regardless if you have experience or not. If you can do nothing else, you can paint and clean. We also need someone, (a wood worker) to rebuild the doors and put in a new floor in the cab. If you are interested in helping, contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org, Attn. Bill Killion , or leave me a private message here on Trainboard. Hope to see some of you here, soon.
