I should also point out that when the original gang pulled OUT the asbestos lagging back around 1990, they made sure to put fibreglass insulation BACK IN! So that new insulation of course only traps more water against the boiler shell and the boiler jacket, and I recall seeing some significant instances where the jacket had rotted right through.

This of course raises the question of what effect this has (and will continue to have) on the boiler shell, staybolt caps, and of course the jacket itself.

This news today:

Let's hope this is done with the recommended steps in the report they commissioned. This locomotive is absolutely priceless and should be restored to her earned status in CNR history

Richard,

That newspaper item is very good news. Maybe the tide is changing.

Nice to see somebody has enough brains to realize the value of what they have
and put some dollars behind it.

Dennis.

Sad that they only decided to do something when another party showed interest, but still good news.
