FM (Sort of) for sale

Postby Aji-tater » Mon Jan 09, 2006 11:07 am

NS has put slug 997 up for sale. The note says it is on F-M trucks, is this a cut-down Trainmaster? Bid ends noon on 1-23-06. Now here is a restoration project that would really be challenging, LOL!

I saw that too, although what I got was an e-mail. Maybe if you go on the NS corporate web site they would have a list of asset disposals.

I found 49 items but not that. Yes, I believe it is a Trainmaster. Could you post it if you find it?
