30-Sept-2013 We need to install the air tanks on the top of the engine to complete the Frisco look, but ran out of shop time before we had to bring it out of the basement for a test fire-up. We end up working inside the trailer two days before taking it out for the scheduled SLLS public run. We need to blind drill and tap eight holes through the jacketing to the boiler pads underneath to mount the air tank brackets. Without accurate locations, we miss the pads and end up with a couple holes in the jacketing. A frustrating development, we really wanted the 'big reveal' to include the distinctive Frisco air tanks, but we decide to stop before making more holes. We will install the air tanks over the winter in the shop.
