I am in the process of working on my layout roundhouse project. I am
detailing the inside and showing locomotives in various stages of overhaul.
Reading and viewing all the books and videos I have I wondering after a
steam locomotive is built or gone through a major overhaul what is the
process for firing it up? Is the fire up performed inside the shop?

Being in my early 40's I am not as fortunate as some of you who may have
worked on and around these mechanical marvels either in service or excursion
service. Thank you in advance.
