Re 67 trucks:  ML&M?  Can someone elaborate on the story behind mismatched and now matched trucks?

Thanks.

Yes, the turntable received more wood treatment, although there is still more to do; the underside and a lot of nooks and crannies are going to need it as the water always seems to go where the preservative cannot get to. Bob. C. was hard at work on it but could use extra hands.

ML&M is Maine Locomotive & Machine, our neighbors in Sheepscot Mills. I'll let someone else elaborate on the details of the swap.
