Photographer Gene Adoline was an enlisted man in the Army at Ft. Richardson in 1954.  Of his photograph, he recalls, "This is the type of engine we use in the M.R.S.  It is shown here idling at the Ft Richardson Yard.  Notice the covering over the Radiator(s) which was needed to keep the engine at operating temperatures.  Immediately in front of the Engineer's forward window sat an oil fired heater which is needed to keep engine warm. On a cold day you did not want them to freeze up or it would be Court Martial Time."
