Monday August 20, 2018 The New Mexico Steam Locomotive and Railroad Historical Society fired-up the boiler of the AT&SF 2926 steam locomotive for the first time since the early 1950s. Over the next two days tests and inspections were performed as the boiler was gradually pressurized to 260 pounds per square inch. The Federal Railway Administration inspector was in attendance. The steam was used to clean out the inside of the rebuilt boiler taking away decades of grit and dirt from the three miles of steel boiler tubing and passage ways inside the locomotive. The fire was killed on the morning of Wednesday August 22 and the public invited to tour the still warm locomotive as guests of the NMSL&RHS. Hundreds visited along with local and national media interested in this story. (movie 2:20).
