The McCloud shops never did end up doing anything with the #1810, and it spent several years being shoved from one part of the yard to another. Nevada Industrial Switch finally brought a small mechanical crew into McCloud in the summer of 1993, and they actually got it fired up towards the end of the summer shortly before they shipped it out.
