Melted grates

This past weekend, we had our annual meet at Waushakum Live Steamers. On Friday and Saturday, I had a difficulty keeping steam on my consolidation. While punching my tubes, it was discovered that one of the drive pipes from the throttle was loose. After a short repair, she was ready to go. On Sunday morning, I steamed up about 10:30 and ran for four hours pulling passengers and without a problem. The draft was so good, that one of my grates was bent. My grates are made of stainless steel, so there was one hot fire.
