I am starting this thread because I feel that 1522 has made a lasting impact on pretty much all of us, and the story of the SLSTA’s initial restoration was one that, possibly, may never happen again. If there would ever be a chance to have 1522 restored again, we need a place to discuss/ask questions about the work that is needed to be done, gather dedicated members who would be able to perform the restoration, and to learn from lessons/tips from remaining SLSTA members. This thread is for asking questions about requirements for Frisco 1522’s restoration/maintenance as of the current day and for former SLSTA members to share their stories about the “behind the scenes” of the work remaining for a restoration. Questions: 1. How necessary would Roller Bearings be for the drivers?a.Would it be possible to add some?1. Are the boiler tubes the only parts needed to be replaced?a.What is the status of the wheels since the derailments? ThomasF.
