She has been monkeyed with, converted to oil! And given a different tender ....
In 1946 UP converted#4005 to oil, but the firebox leaked like a sieve and was quickly restored to coal ... I bet they used a bigger oil burner than then.

took a wee bit to wake up that whistle. Sounds great now. I suspect modern CAD design helped figure out the oil firing conversion that flopped back in the late 40's.
