Steam Inspection

After a positive visual inspection in October, we’re excited to announce a date for our inaugural State steam inspection.

30 Nov. The Depot, Anacortes

Next Monday, the Thompson steam locomotive will be placed on rail and brought to operating pressure under State L&I observation. It will be an all-day event beginning with a hydrostatic test followed by operation on what rail is currently available.

Boiler activity will commence promptly at 8h though I wouldn’t expect to start producing steam until mid day. Feel free to drop by and witness a unique piece of Anacortes history in motion.

Thanks to everyone for continued interest and support!
