1974 Driver Changeout of California Western #45
with a #46 cameo appearance

A June 1974 Wx4 visit to California Western's Fort Bragg enginehouse revealed a lone worker inside, busily replacing diver crank pins on 2-8-2 #45's number four drive axle. The tires remained to be applied. Also in attendance (and cold) was 2-6-6-2 #46.
