Remarks & Notes 
It's never easy to photograph narrow-gauge equipment at mid-day without getting obliterating shadows on the underframe parts of the locomotive, so when Steven the brakeman and I arrived at work three and a half hours early this day to prepare for the first runs of the season I wasted no time getting the little diesel warmed up so I could pull the train out of the shed and into the light. While Steven tended to the oiling of the coach journal boxes I took advantage of the only time during the operating season that there'd be at least some light on the sideframes and shot some pictures, as the only other shots of this engine on the database are one very cloudy old shot of it during it's tenure at Pinafore Park in St. Thomas plus one butt-forward shot of it leading the Portage Flyer back to home base from Fairy Lake back in 2010.
