 Post subject: CPR 2816 Update
PostPosted: Sat Aug 22, 1998 5:03 am 

The following was posted by Bill Brown in the C-P-R mailing list concern the rebuild of CPR Hudson 2816:<p>"2816 has been in the shop for a couple of months or so. The tender sits<br>outside. All boiler insulation and cladding has been removed as well as<br>most piping and boiler fittings. The stoker has been removed in<br>preparation for conversion to fuel oil firing. My understanding is that<br>the boiler is being readied for hydrostatic testing. The results of this<br>and the other inspections currently being made will be used to determine<br>whether to proceed with the full restoration or not. From the inspections<br>made to date, the boiler appears to be in generally good condition. A new<br>cab is to be built and the tender needs fuel oil conversion work and<br>repairs to fix up some corrosion damage to the top platework. A time frame<br>of 9 months was mentioned for the restoration. Personally, I think it<br>might run longer than this unless CP wants to fast track the job and put a<br>big crew on it...." <br>
