I was hired on at bnsf railway in 2005 and by 2006 I had started a mechanical apprenticeship about that time is when I first meet Richard most commonly known around the LMIT as Tvedt that's that's most people refer to others around shop by last name I worked side by side with Richard almost every day that I was assigned to the RRB Richard had just about taught me everything I know about how to repair and trouble shoot GE locomotives and there isn't a day that goes by that a memory or specific task dosent remind me of him. Rest in peace Tvedt the lord knows you worked hard for it.
