I only have had the pleasure of visiting the Baltimore museum once, back in 1989.  At that time, the 1604 was in the mall down the block, and the 1309 was in beautiful cosmetic condition.  I was almost shocked to see how much deterioration happened in that time, but then as we age, 30 years does not seem like such a long time..............  I am glad to see her returned to service and the steam up a few weeks ago.  I have confidence that they will get their bugs worked out and we can have the pleasure of having another large articulated back among the living.
