Wab794 Restoration Progress - 2001
We moved the Wab under it's own steam for the first time on 1st September 2001 since restoration began, with the Dsa behind for moral support.
The night before we lit a small fire in the firebox so the Wab could warm up slowly over night. The next morning we built up a large fire and the brought the boiler pressure up to 120 PSI. We then started tests on the injectors, which work quite well. We found quite a few minor problems and we are currently repairing those.
