  • Due to a fire that started in the main generator, the engine was sidelined and stored in Council Bluffs.
  • On account of 24-month brake maintenance cycle on 24-RL brake equipment vs. 36-month on 26-L systems, the decision was made to part out 304 to fix other units. (Per former CMO Fred Cheney? via the IAIS list, 19 Nov 2004.)
