    Default Retired at last

    I had the dubious pleasure of driving this tender for the past ten years. Last month we retired it.

    RIP Little Feller.

    I'm sure you've got some good times with that truck. And best wishes to many more with the new one. (It is to be replaced right?)

    The old T9 had a ceramic clutch, two speed rear axle, but it always started. If the new one is half as reliable I'll be happy.

    Here's to the old and the new
    To the old may you have a happy retirement.
    To the new may you have a long life in your new position. Sounds like you have some big tire's to fill.
