So wait how close is she from being test fired if you had to give a percent

We will do everything we can to get her into steam this year. I do not think a percentage is meaningful. Everything currently rests on some key steps that do not involve lots of people or hours. Once we have the boiler proved sound under hydraulic pressure a lot of tasks can proceed at the same time. Nigel

Does the FRA inspector make periodic visits throughout the overhaul process or only to witness key events.

As he feels necessary. His call

Is that Dennis Daurgherty and Phil Hehn working on 1630? Is the old steam team coming back to life? Let me know at 608-406-6090. I might have to quit chasing after the steam tugboat Reiss and get back to RR stuff again.

Well at least they look like they are getting closer to operation. When was the last steam operation at IRM? Not counting imported equipment, only IRM engines.
