In 1987 she was given a new boiler and drive wheels and returned to service until 2005, when it was discovered that there was a crack in the underframe. This crack was not fixable, but rather than retire the engine for good, a new underframe was built and more complete restoration performed. On the 25th of April 2009, after restoration, she was returned to service between Kumamoto and Hitoyoshi, Kyushu. The scenic route takes the train through an old brick tunnel and across a steel bridge that dates to the Meiji era.
Likewise, it seems Pacific-Islander has sat on a siding for a while. I've been undergoing a bit of restoration work myself which started with diet changes, exercise, and then some trips to the hospital for an ultrasound exam, endoscopy (yuck), and some meds. I'm now back on track and building up steam, so I hope to get Pacific-Islander rolling along again.
