    Quickly repaired. You can see the welding they did on the smoke box door.

    Thanks @BoxcabE50 ! (y) So glad to see this. The Strasburg's shops are well known for their capabilities. This was a fast turnaround and a fully professional result.

    Fun Fact: back in the PC days, Strasburg's drop table saw at last one GG-1 arrive for wheel bearing work and my hazy memory thinks that several Gs followed for similar work. Cheaper than dragging them all the way back at slow speed to the Gs' home shop at Wilmington, DE.

    I remember reading about this work. My hazy memory is saying the same as yours. It was more than one.
