Trains Magazine excerpt

In the January 1979 issue of Trains Magazine, W.A. Gardner wrote of his experiences working for the Pennsy, helping put their first E-7's into service ("A Reputation for Reliability"). In November 1980, Trains published Gardner's marvelous article about his days with EMD, delivering and troubleshooting new locomotives. "Delivering EMD's Locomotives" was 11 pages long and represents, in my opinion, the kind of meaty article that, sadly, is rarely seen anymore. Gardner mentions a couple of anecdotes about steam generators so I am excerpting them here:
