Perhaps! But it sounds like you're blaming Case's flaws and problems on the operators and the Alberta code, but not Case! All the brands had the same code to follow and (generally) the same engineers...

Please explain to the gallery how much good a water glass that is nearly 2 feet back of the back head of a boiler really is. As were some that Alberta recommended be installed

If you remember back to that get-together in the Red River District back in September, some of those fellers might have been considered as being "spellerized?"
Or something!

Hooda thunk?! It’s a real thing...... Definition of spellerizing

Subjecting the heated bloom to the action of rolls having regularly shaped projections on their working surface, then subjecting the bloom while still hot to the action of smooth-faced rolls. The surface working is said to give a dense texture to pipe made from the bloom, adapting it to resist corrosion.

I remember a phone conversation with you a number of years back, maybe in 2000, where there was some doubt for both of us!
Amazing isn't it, we have both got smarter and better looking in the ensuing years!

Mean while back at the Sawyer-Massey. I remember being at Peter Cowens many years ago. He and I spent a very long evening looking through his collection of Sawyer-Massey information he had gathered, which was considerable. We came to the conclusion that there were at least 2 of the 115s built as there was differences in the sheet metal, bunkers, and operators station, ect . That were quite obvious in the photos. Maybe David might some day find out how many were registered in Alberta. Unless some old Sawyer files come to light we can only guess at the production number.
