Fate of the FP10 Fleet

Postby drvmusic » Fri Apr 11, 2014 12:03 pm

Hi All,

Sorry if it's been covered, but anyone know the fate of these? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=*

I know one sits empty of its prime mover at Edaville, but what of the others?

Try these, just for fun:

6:07 mins with some non-train time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QwprkvVnS3s

5:38 mins, varied equipment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ht4NH5R5nVw
in above, look for push/pull, using RDC's as trailers, around 4:00 or so

I ate them.


According to wikipedia,
During the early 1990s, the FP10s were retired by the MBTA, with four being sold to the Metro North Commuter Railroad (MNCR 410-413), some leased (Cape Cod Central—and eventually resold after that operation ceased) and others being scrapped. In late 1999/early 2000, the last remaining MBTA-owned FP10 units were sold and have operated in Maryland, New Orleans, Georgia, and Idaho on various tourist trains.

Fond memories of the FP10s in that beautiful Cape Cod Central "Great Northern" paint scheme - made great photos. Think we also had them while backing slowly down the Fairhaven Branch.

Sadly enough if you go on you tube under scrapping locomotives you can watch 2 get chopped up poling pockets on pilot and the distinctive bulge on rear of car body,Living in Ipswich the locos were based here back in the early 80s and they all became a friend of sorts .1103 spent the summer of 83 up here and became a favorite I met engineer trishmam fall who gave me me a few short rides I recall 1111 burned on the Gloucester branch early on 1104 came into Ipswich for the night after suffering an fire involving the head end power unit Ilooked inside did not look to bad Beverly fire put the fire out at north Beverly station They were fun to look for being first generation but the odd head end power built to handle go cars was a problem . old rebuilt f units were not to well received at bet from what I recall I do recall going in to various units finding newspaper soaking up oil on the deck,escorted by crew also on you tube ck out f unit cab rides adirondac still runs run great footage

There should be a jumble of letters and numbers after the "v=" in the URL, not just an asterisk. I don't know where you're getting that from, but it's not a valid link.

I'm not adding that asterisk, the post is truncating the address.

I didn't want to believe it, but drv is correct: the URL function is truncating the link :(

it's probably the sites censor.

Edit: Yup, it doesn't allow f_u_k

It should probably be changed to exclude hyperlinks. Because it's obviously causing issues...

Iowa Pacific owns the 1100 and 1114. The 1100 has been operating at its San Louis and Rio Grande Railroad in Alamosa, CO. The 1114 is currently needing a major overhaul and that I believe is on hold due to a dispute over prior work.
