Below is a brief picture timeline on the fast pace restoration process. There are a few gaps in the pictures but everyone can get the general idea.

This locomotive also required the HOT RIVET process.

This locomotive restoration started just 2-1/2 weeks before the show the last week we had to pull (7) 21 hour days. . . we were so glad to get this piece to the convention we finally got some sleep.

The Brookville special turned out out above our expectations.

With the cab interior installed the day of the show. The new radiator grill bolted in place & all the details completed it is off and running in service.

We had 25,000-30,000 people attend.
