Are any of their Baldwins still in service in 2007?

Thanks,

Chris

I would like to know if they ever operated any of the ex OC&E RS12's besides the 207.
What a long strange trip its been.

Escanaba & Lake Superior 4-6-0 #14 is today Arcade & Attica #14.

Regrettably, it's wasting away in the "roundhouse' in the rail yard at Arcade today. It has been out of service since, I believe, the late 1980s.

I think the A&A has been a bit busy lately.
