I assume this was taken after the first restoration and before the engine house closed?
The sweetest sounds in the world: A pair 567's at idle, and a non turbo 645 in run 8!

I wish there would been a date on the photo. I will look at some of the other photos and see if I can date this. but yes what you're saying sounds correct. When did they close the East Wayne shop ? I wonder what the fate of the shop will be after they move everything to Atlanta ?

I would guess it will suffer the same fate as the Frankfort Roundhouse, unless they want to extend the diesel servicing area.
