It is at the Galveston Railroad Museum in Galveston, Tx. It was flooded by ocean saltwater during a hurricane a few years ago, as was their entire collection of equipment. This is the museum that used some of their flood damage insurance funds, to purchase and rebuild two, ex WAG F units. They are now painted in the red and silver Santa Fe paint.

That was one of three H20-44 diesels owned by Southwest Portland Cement. Sad to see that it got water damaged, and isn't operable. I was hoping that one of the sound DCC companies could use it to record the sounds from a larger FM diesel for the 10 and 12 cylinder units, like the Erie Builts and Train Masters.

The light at the end of the tunnel may be the headlight of an on-coming train.
