Document Description
Restore the historic Sierra #3 Locomotive to its operable 1929 appearance, complying with Federal Railroad Administration Standards and the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties. Work will include boiler rehabilitation or replacement with a reproduction; frame work and reassembly; tender repair, and locomotive painting. If boiler replacement is required, the new boiler will match the old as closely as possible. The comers on the replacement boiler will be rounded in the appropriate places. Attaching false rivets in visible areas of the boiler might also be considered. All new components, especially but not limited to the boiler, will match the original in looks and design, where safety is not compromised. All conservation/restoration work will be carefully and thoroughly documented. Project supports historic resources and provides interpretation opportunities.
