There's no date. It's the gon before it was covered.

If its 14, it has to be vintage... 14 hasn't run since... 88?

Or are we talking about a "cold" move of the engine?

Cool, I missed that picture. I'd guess that the photo caption is wrong. It is actually 18. You can see the laminated pilot beam (5 layered wood to form the one beam.) 14's is steel. The picture appears to be from the 2009 season I believe (based on the date on the gon truck and the lack of the roof). The conductor's name is Anthony.
