I don't think that the truck in your seen was there to fuel the locomotive as it was eqiuipped to spray road tar.
Our fuel trucks carried #5 burner oil that was more viscous.

Yes correct, I was wrong in my over-zealous narration, I think they fueled up the 3985 the evening before.

Yes, I ran my normal midnight pest control route at the casinos, slept a few hours, and was up at the crack of dawn to film this!
I even had a chance to "pester" the steam crew, the evening before, while they were trying to enjoy a sit down dinner at Winner's Inn, just bumped into them while I was working my evening pest route there!
