The last time I spoke to CMO- Mike Manweller he mentioned that the 618/1068 was due for a new Form 4 and he was languishing with the thought of removing the drivers, namely the removal of someone's grand idea of welding some heavy plate to the driver counterweights. These will need to be burned off all the drivers so that the tires can be removed from the centers. The welded on plates extend over the tire faces. Needless to say a lot of time with an air-arc, torch and grinder will be the order of the day for that little project. My sympathy goes out to him.

For those who don't know, Manweller is quite a 'Black Diamond Pitcher'. Those that know Mike, know what I am talking about.

Mike, if you read this- How was your QJ experience?

So I wonder when #618 was last re-tired? I have a photo from 1987 that shows the extra counterweight material added on as shown above-- not sure how long before that it was there.

I would doubt that a tourist railroad would go the effort of putting that extra welded-on strap. My guess would be that it was done by Union Pacific in an effort to better balance the wheels.

Nice job on that old Army 60 Tonner. I had the 4007, 4008, 4010 and 4012 in Germany. They were OK with the small cars over there.

Had 1813 at Fort Eustis in 1971. Is she still running OK.
