Mounting the Shiphon Elbow, Part 2

Once we spotted the Diamond and Caldor No. 4 Shay on the tail track last Saturday morning, Doug Youngberg and Garrett Augustus had to mount the siphon elbow on the fireman's side of the water tank. Our original intention was to complete this project the Saturday before (before Westheimer's Rule kicked in).

In the photograph, Doug peers out out the water tank filler port as Garrett prepares thread the bolts.
Sometimes you have to make things fit! Here Garrett re-bores the last two or three holes for the siphon elbow.
