Sierra No. 28 Repair Project- Preparing the Locomotive

Sierra No. 28's sand dome

To start work on repairs to the locomotive’s boiler and firebox, we need to be able to access those areas.  This means removal of a number of appliances, including the bell, sand dome, plumbing, jacket, lagging (cement and fiber insulation), and even the cab.
