Greg, I have immense respect for Dan Holbrook -- but 2008-35 = 1973.
In other words Dan's experiences reflect the modern era and not so
much that of the steam era.

I don't agree with this. I began nin operations in 1960. Given that for the next ten years we were trying to change what had been in effect for dozens of years, I can say that practices I observed were late steam era. Dan's omments fit that picture quite well , for some railroads.
