Taking the "tires" off our 90 ton Shay steam engine, once re-profiled in our wheel lathe, they will be replaced and the engine reassembled, hopefully in time for running season 2012!

We're also re-flueing our 1905 80 ton Shay 5, making new line shaft bearings for the 11 and the Big Six (1945, 150 ton) our other engines are only in need of general maintenance and the yearly fed boiler inspection. 80 ton Shay #2 is still undergoing a boiler rebuild and wont be running for at least another year or two.

That rocks man! It is great to find something you love and trick someone into paying you to do it.

The only way our job could be better would be if they allowed us to drink beer on the job. The cab of the 5 gets up to 130-140f in the summer, and there's no automatic stoker either, it's all hand shoveled coal.

I take that back, it's probably a very good thing they don't allow Beer on the job, that wouldn't end well... I spent a night in the hospital summer '09 from dehydration and heat exhaustion.
