The last 6-axle FM built in the US was also the last to operate. Purchased
new in 1958, this H16-66 "Junior Trainmaster" spent its entire career
working for the Tennessee Valley Authority at its Gallatin coal fired power
plant. It received a heavy shopping in the early 1990's which included a
completely rebuilt prime mover from Fairbanks-Morse. I was lucky to catch
it in operation in April, 1996 as a new natural gas fired power plant was
being constructed nearby.

Outdoor Revolution Speed 2 Fixed Gap
This is my solution to the gap between caravan and the end pads of the
Outdoor Revolution Speed 2 Awning. Simple, but the company was of no help
at all with this problem.
huge, massive, EPIC engine fail ! unbelievable damage
The by far most epic engine fail I've ever seen. The whole engine is almost
completely destroyed and there won't be any chance to repair that piece of
trash that it is after that. The destruction starts @ 0:46
Have fun !
Outdoor Revolution Speed 2 Air awning gap
A gap exists between the Outdoor Revolution Speed 2 awning end pads and the
caravan. This allows wind and rain to blow along the side of the caravan.
This little video shows how much gap there is as standard.
