Rotary #4

Here is the story of Rotary #4 as I know it: Rotary #4 is a former MILW rotary plow that was based out of Tacoma and purchased by the ARR after the MILW's Pacific extension was shut down in 1980. (Somewhere in my archives I have a black and white photo of this rotary coming back into Tacoma the final spring of the Milwaukee pacific extension.) I don't know that the ARR ever actually used the rotary and it was retired probably about the time the photo of the week was taken and placed in the display at the Potter section house. - commentary courtesy of Jason Kuehn, 9/20/05
