I made this post 3 years ago and no one has responded.

The DCRR website still does not work.

The DCRR is subsidiary of the Indiana Railway Museum:

The Spirit of Jasper dinner train uses on of the DCRR Alcos:

The ALCO S2 is a 1,000 horsepower (746 kW) switcher diesel locomotive produced by ALCO. The locomotive is owned and operated by the Dubois County Railroad, a for-profit subsidiary of the Indiana Railway Museum.

Video of the S2. It wasn't numbered in 2010:

Here it is numbered as #78 in 2014:

Are they still operating freight?

This page shows #78 with freight cars:
