Re: 2018 Holiday Shoppers Special

Upon looking at the car on the "Parade of Trains" this past June 2018, ex-GOH'd museum unit #3184 currently has a different sounding air compressor (neither its original WABCO 3YC A-1 type or the NYAB rotary screw compressor), and was riding on a pair of R-32 type trucks.

The braking system is handled a bit differently now, which leaves me to believe it does not have the composition brake shoes that caused plenty of flat wheels on the GOH'd fleet. #3184 runs OK now, but it is missing its two A.C.F. builders' plates as I have noticed that would make the car a bit more complete.
