SW-1001 / E-10-class switchers #s 100-107

What ails each of the SW-1001s that are on the deadline at Morris Park, and why is the LIRR not repairing them and returning them to service? These seem to be a very useful group of engines that the LIRR can ill-afford to lose the use of.

Due to the fact that the SW1001s need asbestos abatement, the LIRR needs an outside contractor to do the work. Since they don't want to spend the money that is why they aren't scheduled for overhaul. Hope this helps.

I'm sure shortlines might have interest. Many have even older motive power (some even prewar!).
Since my friend continues to chain smoke nonstop, she is probably an Alco.
