The picture showing Lushen Kendrick standing on the front shows the smokestack has rusted out and fallen off. Also, weeds are growing up all around the engine.
One of two pictures that shows what pitiful shape old '97 is in now.
The group at French Lick is making no effort to maintain the engine and it is
slowly rusting away. I guess it shows that equipment shouldn't be given to any

from making a trip up there, and being disappointed.
