Diesel Shop Butler, WI 1385991 viewsAfter 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
Diesel Shop Butler, WI 1385834 viewsThe tender had a very serious side bearing defect. It was worked on by the car department employees. I do not know the names of the workers. The photo shows the rear truck out and repairs were in progress. The front truck had to be removed for the same repairs. Photo taken in July 1982 by D. Coleman

On the 1st of July, C&NW announced that the shop would close and the work would be transferred to the Marshalltown, Iowa and Proviso, Illinois shops.
