That right there is some neat footage. I don't think any of those south american "Joes" were saved, which is a shame ... at least we've got three here in the 'States.

The 803 has run before at IRM, though not recently. One of the air compressors apparently needs work (and you need both because they're running at half-speed anyway). Still looks great though, and I suspect it will be moved outside for display (maybe with a lit headlight!) for our Museum Showcase Weekend in a couple weeks.

Hope 803 is running... we plan to be out there. Would no doubt look better if it were in orange & black, but simply running is good enough for me.
