I got some "inside info" about it from a good friend back East. No, it's
not there yet. It's in Cicero Yard shopped. Seems it got from Stockton
all the way to Clearing Yard before anyone noticed that it had
thin flanges on 3 wheel sets. BUT the BNSF had already accepted it for
interchange, so it's their problem. They offered to replace all of them
if the DL would supply the wheel sets. OK, that's good, but it'll cost a
little more transit time.
