Sorry Leland - I know for a fact that the pic with Gene in front of the train ( I even watched the video of them wheeling that big sucker - the train, not the tuba! - out of the hanger for the photo shoot) for the TubaTracks cover AND the tuba on the Orchestra Pro Tuba CD is in fact a YorkBrunner.
Gene HATES to travel with the"good" CSO York because it's so fragile - including when the CSO tours (but he still allows it to go on the tours). He's in the process of possibly purchasing a Nirschl to take the place of the York on tours. And the ONLY way he'll travel on his own with the York is when he can purchase a plane ticket for it and strap it in next to him. Even then - he worries like a mother hen.
