Title:  GN 2186 Sits ready-to-go in a Cold Dawn awaiting retirement
Description:  2186 - Class Q2 sits ready to go on a cold morning. Retirement is only a year or so awayat age 30. Bad thing about being a retired steam locomotive - you don't get to enjoy it long - you end up being recycled into other useful things.
