Nope... Definitely 3560, former WTNN unit of the same number. Built as CN 2560 9/76. The same unit is mentioned on the previous page of this thread, as it was only acquired a few years ago.

The 3560 is now a GVT/DL unit. Someone posted a pic of it on an Alco-FB page today in Scranton with "DL" painted over the patched OMID emblem. Needless to say it's tenure on the Ontario Midland didn't last very long.

There's a Youtube video from several months ago of the LAL 417 (RS18u) working on the OMID. Is that the only serviceable unit they have now? (From what I've heard the 408 and 36 have been OOS for a while now with issues).

36 went to the Batten Kill back in March, the 408 joined it last month. Both are now lettered for SNEX

It's now on the DL in Scranton, PA.
