Heat shortage was averted at San Diego by use of a San Diego & Arizona Eastern switch engine when two boilers in the local gas company's plant had to be shut down for overhauling during the cold wave. Old No. 1 was spotted on a spur at the gas plant and, with a full head of steam, substituted for one of the boilers in enabling the plant to manufacture gas at sufficient output to keep homes warm. Scrawled on the sides of the ancient engine (built in 1909) were the words, "Gas Plant Special."
