In Late February 2000, we test the superheater units. We run the
pressure up to 800 psi and rap sharply on the unit with hammers to cause
any weak spots to let go. If you wondered, these are Type E units.

Feb 26. We do the superheater testing on this cold rainy day because CCS Inc. is
sandblasting the boiler today and it's better to be outside in the clean air.
We christened the pool in the trailer parking area "Lake Brooklyn" (this is
the Brooklyn roundhouse).

Bingo! Much as we don't like them to fail, it's far, far better here than in the
engine. Photo by Terry Thompson

Superheater units are heavy! We need five people, four to lift and one to
steady the cart. Photo by Terry Thompson
