As my fading memory sort of remembers, the morning of Saturday May 22, 1971, was to be first movement of the 1057 under its own steam and only those who worked on or assisted with the project were supposed to know about the event.  Well working for CN (yes, I know, the competition) at the time, I apparently knew about it also.  The 4069 appears to be thinking, "I thought we were done with steam!!"
