"Dutch", interesting that they re-equipped all of the leaders with M-1 type
horns, probably a good idea. The tweeter whistles were kind of hard to
hear at any distance and if there was any condensation in the line, they
were even worse.
What you said about retaining a few of them is the first time that they
have made any sense over this. The way I read one of your more recent
posts was that almost as soon as they made their last runs, they would be
stripped down and moved off for scrap.
