The previous owners let the engine run like that, Dave didn't have a problem with it, it was never a problem until someone said last year that the engine was not safe to run.When something sounds foolish, chances are it is.
The 7470 goes through regular inspections by the railroad and the FRA and when a defect is found, it is taken out of service till repairs are made, plan and simple. The inspections work, an issue was identified and it was addressed, it was not ignored by this ownership or the previous ownership.
It takes real skill to choke on air, fall up the stairs and trip over nothing. I have those skills.
