Re: Need ingenious solution??!!

Lose the crosshead pumps altogether. Get a steam pump and injector or two injectors.
There is a reason that the railroads got rid of the things.

Hi Steve
I won't make it either. Thought about it. The heat literally burns me. Hoping for cooler weather.

Bernie.....keep the October Blow Down on your schedule. It is cool and crisp and great weather to get a dose of steam vitamins!

It is good to hear that you enjoyed your trip and got to visit with 611. But more importantly I wish you and your new wife a long and happy marriage!
