The frame goes under the boiler
Jim Smith is installing flat-bar rails on the shop floor. Bar is just the height of the wheel flanges in order to preserve clearance for the overhead crane above the locomotive.

The frame goes under the boiler

Tuesday, September 18, 2018 by MC

The rush was on to get the assembled frame and wheels under the boiler prior to our annual open house. This required the installation of temporary rail on the floor and then pulling the frame into the shop under the boiler. The boiler was raised up on cribbing to allow clearance for the frame.
