Forgive my ignorance on rebuilds, but I noticed #1066 was awful nice looking on 8/31, when it was in Ayer with backup unit #1010. Just how much work was done?

1066 was given:
A new prime mover
New bell & horn
New paint job
Grills were removed
And Im sure a few other people can give a more detailed report than this.

Well I'm pleasantly surprised it didn't get an electronic bell! That's probably a 3rd generation K5LA horn too.
