“March 25 and 26 saw more progress in the shop. Shop forces included Doug Crary, Doug Klitzke, Don Angles, Jim Connor and Ed Ripp. We completed the throat sheet backer and bolted it to the throat sheet. Completed the rivet bolt tightening. Installed studs in the boiler. The DL&W 425 repairs moved along with work on the B-end truck. Also the center casting and new side bearings bolted and tack welded.”
