A major milestone was reached today on the 4501 rebuild - The first driving wheelset was placed back under the locomotive. #2 and #3 will go in tomorrow. #4 will remain out of the locomotive until we have a successful hydrostatic test. We have more clearance to the arch tube plugs and outer throat sheet with #4 out of the locomotive.

The new Sellers Injector has also been mounted.

Following the installation of the driving wheels, we will shift back to boiler work to begin tube installation as we work towards the hydrostatic test.
