Anyone have any updates regarding WM 302 ? I cannot find the West Virginia Railroad web site that had photos of this FA2.

John, The FA2 is Scranton is under consideration for return to service. It has a late model 244H in decent shape. And we have all the parts to repair it too!

This unit looks to be in bad shape, and is not currently being worked on. It is stored in the yard at Bellington. I stopped by there last week while vacationing in the area.
