RECENT ALCO TRANSACTIONS

Postby Alcoman » Sat Dec 15, 2007 9:31 am

I just learned of two Alco transactions that have not been reported earlier.
1) Ex-P&W 2004 sold to Thunder Rail in Saskatchewan, Canada

2) Ex-CP RS-23 8032 in Fort Fairfield, Maine. This was purchased from NRE.

Ayone have more info on these?

Per "CN9634" of the MMA forum, the RS-23 at Fort Fairfield is part of a museum collection.

According to Ozark Mountain Railcar's web site, the six M420Ws have been sold. Anyone know who the buyer was?

Just received this information from a yahoo list:
Great news!


"Now that financing is in place and the deal has closed with CN, think I am at liberty to advise that Trillium has purchased two ex-Ottawa Central RS-18's.

Both locomotives will be assigned to the St. Thomas & Eastern with #3582 being relocated to PCHR."

Mike,

The WNYP acquired the C630M from the A&M back in 2003, partly because the C630M was an oddball in their fleet. Notice, the A&M seems to love their C-420s. Also this was 6 years ago now? The needs of the company must have changed as well. Everything on the railroad is done for a reason or for no reason at all. ;)

GVT has recently acquired the sole survivor of Wabash's C424 fleet from Associated Electric. She was built for N de M, diverted to Wabash as B905 and is now #2409 on the D-L.

Catskill Mountain RR in Kingston just received an S-1 # 407 from a broker. It will keep this number and RS-1 2361 will be renumbered 400 to match 401 and 407.
