Diesel Shop  Butler, WI  1385
After the Butler Railroad Days weekend in, I believe  July 1982,  FRA inspector Jack Swaggert found serious defects on the locomotive and tender. This photo shows  the 1385 without the tender. It had a serious train- line (brake pipe) leaks and defects to brake rigging and the Engineer side driver rod. The Division Manager, Ron Kless , had asked for "volunteers" to work on it, I almost dislocated my elbow to do so. It was the only time  I was able to work on steam locomotive. Photo by D.Coleman
