  1. There was some multi-gauge track at GMD (at least in their later years) so it’s possible narrow gauge (or, wide gauge) locos may have been run around the plant area a bit before coming off their trucks for shipping.

  2. Did they ever test them out on their original trucks?

    Keep these pictures coming.
