Chiriqui Land Co. 2-6-0 No. 46Posted by: Chris on 2005-02-15 19:45:03.713

Since last report, all new bearings for main and connecting rods have been machined in house and pressed into their respective rods. Oil cellars were also fabricated and installed on the locomotive. As of now, the side rods are on permanently on, and connecting rods need a tad more work before final installation. Brake rigging has also been tweaked and is on for good. Various little ongoing jobs, but it`s all adding up slowly but surely.  Boiler work continues...    -Chris
