Nice high voltage electrical fire. I bet that smelled "good". Could be the kiss of death for that unit.

...pretty standard for G&W locomotive maintenance and upkeep.  Its proof you can put new paint on a locomotive all you want to please shareholders and look "pretty"...but still have a poorly maintained locomotive. As the old adage goes " you can pollish a turd all you want...but it still a turd."
