Some disturbing news regarding alleged RRRR SW900#4

Postby NJT4272 » Fri Oct 28, 2016 7:11 pm

Just read this over on the PA railfan forum. If she's lost, that's going to be a very sad loss of NJ history.

I'm surprised that it slipped under the radar considering how many people have be watching it and how I know for a fact that certain entities have been trying to acquire it.

If anyone knows anything, please enlighten us.

Not exactly sure how they intended to possible gain possession, but I have read about entities' intentions to possibly acquire her for preservation.

you have to understand donation, it is usually done to get tax write off, if company they are trying to get it from, does not pay taxes or already has sufficient write offs that company is not going to donate.
cause they would loose.
for company in that situation the scrap value would be worth more.
