Yeah the 223's degradation had nothing to do with salt, since it was in the middle of a large grassy area near the Tracy Aviary away from roads and pavement. The real destructive power were the sprinklers that watered the locomotive as much as they did the grass.

The 223 was only painted one time while in the park, in 1952 if I remember correctly, by the D&RGW's Salt Lake City shops who donated their time to the project.
