A roster change: US Army 1873 was sold and is now up for resale on Sterling Rail's website: ... p?id=19111

The GP10 had been in use at Fort Lewis, WA (now Joint Base Lewis-McChord). The operation there is very short on mileage. Locomotives operate only between the load-out yard and the interchange yard, which almost touch each other.
