Unfortunately, based on second-hand photos I've seen just recently, the paint
is not holding up well. The yellow was fading to a chalky white color.
The problem appears to be typical with restored equipment. The SAL SDP35 at
Hamlet NC is in the same predicament.
Does anyone have a recent first-person sighting of 3607 to confirm that?
