Default Steam startup

A while ago someone posted the steps necessary to start up a steam locomotive from dead cold. It was a lengthy process which I found very interesting. I would be fascinated to see a start up check list from any, or several of the operating steam boats, either from dead cold or from overnight shutdown. Same for the shutdown check lists. I'm sure that the process is somewhat different, or at least simpler, for the Graceful Ghost than it is for Natchez. Would any of the engineers here be willing to post for those of us who don't get the chance to play with steam machinery, but wish we could?
