Re: CP loco fuel

I'll answer part of my own question about Stevens: I find a 2 September 1870 Union note (again from Best) that Stevens had just been made General Master Mechanic (not General Super of Motive Power as was Perkins).

This was just before the attempt to measure fuel consumption on the CP over the hill.

So, my question remains, was Stevens down on the WP before going to the CP?
