Thanks for posting, Marty.  The shot of the 328 probably shows it on display in Stillwater, MN.  The engine was later restored by MTM and operated in excursion service for a time, I believe in the 80's.  (I was not personally in the area when this occurred.)  It is now out of service, probably at the Jackson Street Shops of MTM.  If it will ever run again is up in the aire AFAIK.  Corrections welcomed.
