As per the question about the engines, my family acquired them in 1973 along with the engines of the GEN. JOHN NEWTON. I'm pretty sure that they are still sitting in the warehouse in New Orleans, though I myself have never seen them in person. I have heard stories that all the brass is gone, victims of looting over the years. Be interesting to see how much is still there, but I assume they can be brought back to operating condition, right?
