Air Dry

Harlock posted on Chaski.org:

Another trick that several friends use is they pressurize the boiler on air while it is still hot, after blowdown. They then open up every orifice and appliance and blow every last drop of water out, and roll the engine back and forth to blow it out of the cylinders with the drains open. Then the boiler is dry and still warm, and any remaining moisture evaporates before it cools down, so it is bone dry when put away.
