6060 was built with an exhaust steam injector, located outboard of the fireman's side #4 driver. This was replaced in 1973 with a Hancock inspirator. In addition, 6060 has been fitted with ditch lights, both on the nose and on the tender, as well as a second dynamo to provide extra electrical power. The installation of an Alerter-Reset Safety Control device and speedometer is currently underway thanks to a generous donation by the North American Railway Foundation, and will be completed by the summer of 2009.
