Claremont, Concord and Clare...

Whatever. It changed so often I couldn't keep up over the years.

All I gotta say is that 44-tonner sure was pretty.
What's with the vanishing GE's in McGinnis makeup? Makes me frown.

#119 on the property

44T # 119 remains on the property currently sitting outisde of the shop. The unit looks very nice in the black CC paint. There is a second 44T inside being rebuilt (#?), I was told that both are sold and heading to a shortline in Georgia sometime in the early summer.

The 44-tonners have been sold and were loaded onto trucks for shipment to Georgia:

106 is said to be privately owned by mobile locomotive mechanic Chris Freed, based out of Topton, Pa.

Well, whoever owns 106, it's getting what appears to be a fresh coat of PINSLY RED!

One of the Alco's from this location will be shipped to a new switching operation near Philly to be used as the motive power.

Claremont & Concord 119

Postby atsf sp » Tue Oct 06, 2009 5:06 pm

I recently saw a picture of CC 119 at the Savannah Roundhouse Museum http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/showPicture.aspx?id=1786675.
When was it shipped down there? Is it off the roster? What are the museums plans for it?
"Why would you take a train to go see another train?"
Some people just don't understand.

I believe they shipped earlier this year. It had been sold for awhile (along with #30). I am not sure of the musuems plans. Looks like it is in good hands (southern hospitality)

Pioneer Valley 106 , now privately owned and repainted, ( as # 27) should be off the property too.

In the Valley RR thread it mentions 2 more pieces leaving Claremont Jnc as well but no one has posted what (yet)
