Locomotives 8208, 5023, and 5018 left Derby yesterday for NMJ. Looks like they are starting to shipping out the last of the MMA units out of Derby.

All three locomotives are still at NMJ. There sitting on a siding with two of Pan Am Russel snow plows. Starting to look like they were moved out of Derby to get them out of the way.

I was a bit confused, seeing a photo of it hooked to 77 on one of the Waterville switch jobs the other day

Does anyone know if the the Rail World Test Bed (ex-Amtrak 273) still exists at Derby? The auction
results show it sold for $18,000 (no buyer listed).

Good news MMA 450 (Former CDAC 450) has a new owner, the Western Maryland Scenic RR. LTEX got the unit up and running and it will be repainted in the coming months at WMS into WM colors. The unit is on a lease to own deal, in other news former MMA 758 (ExBCOL 758) which was purchased by the WLE has been repainted and possibly rebuilt. The two B39-8's that went in the last group of loco's were being eyed by the SGLR in FL but I never heard more about it.
