Those Short bent pipes are originals. There is a short nipple screwed into the engine then we changed the 2 unions to modern Ground boss models to give a bit of alignment adjustment. The 21/2" pipes to the smoke box are new. We used all the old nozzles and fittings in the front end.Post #5, pic 2, nice job bending the exhaust. Pipe bender or.......Screwed piping is a pain the ass. However if you know your fitting allowance and the manufacturer machines decent threads it helps.

Yes Tim the Osage 36 will be there on static display. We plan to park the two together at the show. They are the only two Canadians to survive. Mine was sold out of the Calgary Rumely Branch house and Smoliks has a Saskatchewan number on the smokbox. Probably sold out of the Regina or Saskatoon Branch houses. Smoliks bought it out of a mill in The Pas Manitoba.Tim,
The one from Osage should be at Forest City as well. That one and George's are the only dry bottom Canadian models.
