Locomotive #35 Update

Although the ongoing COVID pandemic has brought many changes to the rail preservation community, our volunteers continue to move forward on the Locomotive #35 project. At this time, negotiations are underway to resume work with our contractor, with the present goal of cosmetically restoring the locomotive as a movable (towable) display. We will continue to provide updates on this progress as events transpire.

Meanwhile, in Oyster Bay, the structural restoration of the locomotive cab is essentially complete thanks to the efforts of John Petsche and Fred Rubin. We continue to perform other basic maintenance and inspections on the other parts of the locomotive that remain on site, such as the cylinders, smokebox saddle and frame-mounted bearings (brake rigging, reverser, etc).

We just received the new boiler studs and had all of our new staybolt caps restored for installation this year. We also began the process of needle scaling the frame starting at the rear where the newly restored cab will sit. 6 steel parts were restored and temporarily installed to mock things up.

As always, we encourage the involvement of all who wish to see this project through to completion. Please stay tuned for future news and updates!
