MEC GP38s Current Status?

Postby eman577 » Tue Dec 01, 2009 7:28 pm

One of the MEC GP-38's went to the UP after kicking around New England for a while.
I believe it was the 258, which became NHVT 3800. Does anyone know the UP number,
and if it is till in service?

The two MEC GP38s I'm aware of that went to UP were 253 and 257.

MEC 253 -> CDOT 253 -> UP 2381 -> UP 881 -> GMTX 2100 (GATX Locomotive leasing)
MEC 257 -> CDOT 257 -> UP 2382 -> UP 882 -> GMTX 2101 (GATX Locomotive leasing)

No idea what the current status of those units is at present.

MEC 258 -> HLCX 258 -> NHVT 3800 -> HLCX 3619 -> OVRL 2000 (Update: AAR reporting mark as stated seems to be incorrect; I believe the loco went to Ottawa Valley Railway, reporting mark OVR)

Again, no idea the current status of the unit.

One went to the VTR, and is lettered as Clarendon and Pittsford (203?).
