John is it the Allentown & Auburn like Railpace hot news said it was that was trying to save this unit at like $60k or is someone else. $60k seems like a lot though may that have been a typo. I had but this in the ALCO transaction forum but no one said anything so I guess I was just wondering on some of the details.

As I understand it, the LNE 611 will be Stored and Operated on the Allentown & Auburn railroad. They do need to raise $60,000 with $30k being a minimum just to move it since it needs to be placed on a flat car. Keep in mind that they are also paying rent to store it where it sits now so the sooner they get it moved, the better.
