PC to Suzie Q

Post by Matt Langworthy » Wed Jan 02, 2008 10:07 pm

From the latest issue of Railpace, NYS&W has recently acquired 5 former PC GP38-2s:

CSXT #2725 > CR #8065 > nee PC #8065
CSXT #2732 > CR #8087 > nee PC #8087
NS #5273 > CR #8063 > nee PC #8063
NS #5293 > CR #8097 > nee PC #8097
NS #5294 > CR #8099 > nee PC #8099

I believe they were leased, not purchased.

That is what I thought. Well I have heard it called Rumor Pace recently, but maybe this is one of those rumors with truthiness in it.

Clarification

Post by Matt Langworthy » Sun Jan 06, 2008 6:59 pm

Actually, the mistake is mine, not Railpace's, so please accept my apology. I assumed received meant acquired, when they are not the same. An NS message board reports the units are leased to Suzie-Q.

At any rate, it's nice to know some of PC's loco fleet is still active.

Link to photo of WAMX#3817 shows PC and CR markings

I do not know if this one was listed or linked since I did not read all 13 pages of posts.

You can clearly see the Penn Central markings and the CR markings underneath. Photos are from 2007 in the state of Kansas.

Interesting...

Wow zablocki22, I did not realize any locomotive like that was still bombing around. Quite surprised the Penn Central paint is still there and what a great catch.

page updated, July 7, 2008:

http://gold.mylargescale.com/Scottychao ... /index.htm

and WAMX 3817 is PC 7788.
The only known loco still roaming around in its PC paint!

(PC 7049 at Larrys is also in PC paint, but its a museum re-paint, not original PC paint)

Found this on the "Loconotes" yahoo group

"Reliable sources report New Hamshire Northcoast
GP9 1756 at scrapped by Pan Am/Springfield Terminal
at Waterville Shops (Maine) in the last two weeks. It
was first stripped of usable parts to repair ST 62."
