Good luck with that. It seems like you can't even give away an MRS-1 these days. I can think of at least two operable ones that have been for sale for years. Heck, if nobody wants to buy an RS-11, who would buy an MRS-1? Sad but true. :(

It appears to be within range considering its condition and prices of EMD switchers which are going for $150,000 to 206,00 by comparison.

Does anyone know if any of the remaining ALCO/MLW's have been sold within the last year?
I need a list of those sold and to whom.
Thanks.
