New Firebrick Going in Firebox

New Firebrick Going in Firebox

On a blistering August 8, the steam crew found refuge from the summer heat inside the firebox of 3751 as they worked to install pieces of new firebrick. Besides reusing many, MANY pieces of older firebrick that still have a lot of life in them, a section of old firebrick that made up the flash wall were finally ready for retirement after many years of use. In an effort to limit future firebrick work, the newly ordered bricks (pictured in the photo in this post) were used to build up the entire flashwall.
