CR 3687 X-PRR GP-35. GP-35's were notorious for leaking lub oil. FRA said this condition was a defect, so engine house laborer would wipe it off making tanks look nice and shinny and after a couple hours in run 8 would need to be wiped off again. Adding lub oil to units was part of servicing diesel units. Not all the lub oil went out the exhaust stacks.
