Remarks & Notes 
The two sharks on the E&LS were seldom seen in the light of day after the first few months on the property. On occasion they were moved out of the roundhouse in Wells or later the big building the E&LS had bought in the ex crane plant in Escanaba. I happened upon them parked at Wells spliced by another E&LS Baldwin in the spring of 1984. I nearly didn't shoot the scene because of the tree shadows on 1205. The units were not running in this photo and as far as I know had not ran in a number of years, although they supposedly are still parked inside to this day.
