#7 is pretty much complete. Just a few more tests and it will be riding the rails!

The Detroit Lima became the DT&I. I live along the old DT&I mainline. The tracks are still there.

Over the 2007-2008 winter the cab was removed and the firebox was completely repaired. It's the only progress I've seen. It's a spare time project.
