While the Earle RR is hard to catch, every time I have seen the train, out on the pier at least, its been powered by the SWs - I haven't seen the Baldwins in a LONG time. Thats not to say they aren't used, but I haven't seen them in a long time, only the SWs, and I have NEVER seen the 80tonner, in the Leonardo area at least

The navy RR is a very interesting operation, and I hope that it continues for the future, as its just a part of life living in the area to hear the trains going by at all wierd hours of the day and night!
On the RR, "believe nothing you hear and only half of what you see"

Until the GE 80-ton is repaired - a very unlikely event, since the base's railway operations branch never wanted it in the first place - it will continue to sit outside the enginehouse in the main base area, far from Leonardo.
