1385_1st_look.jpg
R-1 1385 Butler, WI667 viewsThis photo was taken while working third shift. It was the first time the 1385 arrived on the Butler ramp. The photo was taken with available light while holding the shutter open. The look of it reminded me of the brass model trains and was an accident that it turned out that way. I believe the photo was taken in the spring of 1981. Photo by D.Coleman44444
