I doubt a spray washer could remove this encrustation. Bring on the caustic cleaner and scrub brushes!

I bet the raditors were not as efficient on that unit than they used to be.

Crew had to be careful not to brush up against the hood when entering the cab!

Wow! My print shop was about 50 yards from that spot back in those days. I saw lots of grubby SP power pass through SLO, but never anything that filthy. Picture is looking north.
