SUPER HEATER TUBE SPONSORSHIP CAMPAIGN

Back to Superheaters Campaign

Again looking forward through the engine's boiler hatch and into the smoke box, this picture shows the forward fluesheet exposed after removal of all of the Superheater tubes back in late 2007. Also visible is a couple dozen of the old fluetubes near the bottom before they were ultimately removed and the entire boiler interior sandblasted, cleaned-out and tested for thickness and structural integrity with ultra-sonic measuring equipment. At the top of the frame, you can see the superheater collector and throttle box, with two massive pipes protruding forward. These make the final delivery of super-heated and throttled steam to the driver pistons.
