Uhhh, I thought this was Midweek Photos, not a ranting thread on Amtrak's new Acela.
Allow me to help get this thread back on track.
Here are a few newly forged flexible staybolts for Reading T1 no. 2100. They were placed in strictly for photography reasons.
We have been undergoing a project to replace the inner side sheets on both sides of the locomotive. They have been welded and riveted in place, and we are now fundraising for the forging of new staybolts. There are 560 that need to be made.
For just $10, you can be the one to forge a brand new staybolt for the firebox, bringing the engine one step closer to breathing again.
