  1. There are a couple of things about this loco worth noting. It is equipped for “road” service with the 3 chime horn & pilot between the footboards. Because it is still primarily a yard engine, the front trainline air hose & angle cock (valve) is located on the engineer’s side rather than the usual right side. This is a throwback to the days before radios. When the crew member had to connect the air on the front, they didn’t have to reach across the coupler. In those days, the ground crew had to be visible to the engineer. One other thing many folks may not know, it was almost impossible to “dump the air” when opening the valve on a yard engine, no matter how fast one did it. I’m not sure why they had that feature but many a new employee were confused by it.
