This info is not correct. WAMX means "Webb Asset Management". This is the locomotive leasing division of the WATCO company. WATCO owns the railroads and operates them under the WATCO corporate name. The founder and owner of WATCO was Dick Webb. He passed away a few years ago, and his family members now run the operations.
I don't believe WATCO/WAMX has any Alcos in operation, (not sure they ever had any at all), probably no early SD's, and is currently weeding out few old GP's that remain. They do have a couple of F units for the Kentucky dinner train.

My friend was Richard Watkins, who was the founder of "Watkins America" (reporting marks - WAMX). Many of the railroads that WAMX owns, uses Alcos; along with early model EMDs (F series, early SD and GP).
Two of the photos were of diesels in a train with whay appeared to be plastic covered equipment. Do you have any idea as to what was under the plastic covers?
