- Yeah, the old design only lasted 90 years or so without incident.
Thanks to the usual idiots for the "approved" design.

- I have more photos of the ash pit at Chama before it got
'modernized', but I vaguely recall that the previous one was also an
upgrade from years before. My photos are from 2000+ something and I'd
have to dig around to find them. I'll look if there are modelers that
need some shots of it empty and some with a loco on it.
