SHAY STEAMUP SUCCESSFUL

The Shay was steamed up on the afternoons of July 5 and 6 and run for the enjoyment of the membership. Testing of recent repairs was another reason for the operation. The operation went very well, with the old sidewinder running better than ever. A full report with plenty of pictures will be in the next issue of REPORT.
