Avesta börjar bli klar

No 10 Avesta is nearing completion, the connecting rods has been fitted and the bearings has been shimmed to the right clearance – a simple rolling test was performed and as you can see it does not take much effort to get the loco in motion. All running gear has now been fitted and the locomotive is ready for a steam trial.

Rörelsen har börjat kopplas upp, koppelstängerna är på plats
Injustering av koppelstångslager
Rullprov, som synes rullar det lätt
Montering av vevstaken

Avesta närmar sig provkörning

There has also been some progress with No 10 Avesta, she has been lowered on her axles recently – new lubricating pads (wowen in our own workshop on the special loom we have for this purpose) have been installed in the axle boxes. It remains to fit the coupling rods, side rods and the valve gear before the engine can be taken out fora test run. We hope that have her running on ”museibanans dag” in september

Lok 10 Avesta har sänkts ner på sina hjulaxlar, nya smörjdynor i axelboxarna – hjulen är sedan tidigare svarvade – nu återstår att koppla upp maskineriet så loket blir klart för provkörning – förhoppningsvis kan loket gå på museibanans dag senare i år.
Ingen gjuten lokskylt har monterats på denna sida av hytten ännu
