I have no idea of what may or may not be available on these tests, I do 
not have any copies in my files.  The date of the photo, which I found 
last night, was October 7, 1955, and was units 11, 12, 13 and 10, 
dynamometer car and coal loads trailing. It was one of several photos 
shot that day at that location, the rest, of course, was steam power.
