The Porter gets a new pilot beam!
Restoration work continues on our Porter 0-4-0 Compressed Air Locomotive. In the images below we find our team of restoration volunteers installing a new pilot beam to the front of the locomotive.
Further restoration work to reassemble to locomotive is waiting primarily on restoration of the wheel sets which has been contracted out to a professional firm. Meanwhile, our crews are continuing to work on restoring the wooden cab as can be seen in the last image below.
