Towards the end of June, CSR completed a successful trip to Topeka to prepare locomotive 3463 for its first big trip in 57 years. In just a few day's time, the crew drained and inspected all of the locomotive's roller bearing axles and refilled the boxes with new oil. Following that work, the crew removed key side rods, inspected all of the running gear and cleaned / re-lubricated all necessary parts.
A detailed description of that work performed can be found at this link or by clicking the image at right.
CSR is in discussions with appropriate parties concerning the move of 3463 out of the Kansas Expocentre Grounds.
