for those who hae this months Trains Mag, it lists that the LSRC is keeping some ALCos to take the new traffic burden while newer GP40-3s are brought to service, Most the C424s and 2 M420Ws kept, but D&M RS2 and 2 other RS3ms didnt make the cut. It was said that those units are off the property and ethier are going to scrap or some other railroad.
I can care less about the RS3ms, we have qn abundance of them, its just the RS2 im concearned about, that is THE last RS2 in operational service. Anybody from Michigan know its whereabouts now?!?
I wouldnt want that to go to Scrap!!
An abundance of RS3m's?? where, cause i'd sure like to know. these are low now RS3's and i'd kill to see both of them saved. The RS2, well i'm sure it will be saved. However!!!, all three ARE still on the property at LSRC with the 974 and 469 still in Saginaw and the 975 in Alpena. None have left yet as of last week and nothing has been done. When they finally leave, i'll believe they are sold.. when they are running again.. i'll believe they are safe. Also.. MLW's 3515 and 3504 are down for the count i'd say. Only M420's 798 and 3500, which sounds horrid right now, are running. Also.. LSRC does not have C424's. 2 are C425m's 281 and 381.. and 2 are C425Mac's 1280 and 181.
take care guys..
