So, according to the foamboy, responding to a major
customer's request to pull one of the customer's
trains with a steam locomotive was a "stunt"?

I'm sure the people at what was then APL would be
surprised to hear that.

That event occurred in the early 1990's, IIRC. so
this same idiot claims that after another 20 years
of service by the 3985, it was no longer fit to
run solely because of that stack train "stunt" from
20 years prior?

What would we do without experts such as this fool?
