Re: DRG #168 Project: Smokebox-Boiler-Firebox
The drawing I have of #169 shows the firebox front back at least 3 feet from the tapered course, and the photos of #168 confirm that. For the other end, I don't have a precise measurement but I have a photo I took when the locomotive was being restored, standing in the cab looking forward, and the boiler/firebox appears to come into the cab about half-way.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
At the NGDF, here's a link to the post containing the drawing:

Question, on almost all boilers on smaller engines, the taper of the boiler begins where the fire box ends. Is the T-12 different? I noticed your taper starts after the firebox.
