This weekend, we installed a new governor on 358. The old one was not passing the test, and needed to be replaced. On the recommendations of several others, we elected to have Peaker Services, Inc. build us a governor. Keith Mellin designed the governor to have a “softer” response on the throttle. This will allow the locomotive to “load” up smoother like a passenger locomotive, of which it will be for it’s second life.
