There is an ALCO T-6 of ex CR, PC, PRR haritage working on the Black Water and Eastern RR in Maryland or New Jersey?? that is still in operation.

Black Water & Eastern RR? I can't find any reference to that line anywhere. Can you provide more information on it?

  by PRRGuy
I believe you mean the Black River & Western. Correct, they did have a Ex PRR T-6, which was sold to Pioneer Railcorp and is currently working in Michigan.

PC GP9 7049 was preserved at the "Age of Steam" museum in Minerva, Ohio:


But now she at Larry's Truck & Electric!

http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.p ... 25&nseq=37

anyone know why she left the museum??

and check out the PC paint! :P
at first I thought "could that really be original PC paint??"
but check out the remants of CR blue..
this was a PC unit, was painted in full conrail blue, than was painted BACK to PC black!

ah! hold on..I just found some info about it:

Yep, that's the Geep that originally was at the museum in Wellsville,
WV, until it folded a few years ago. It was picked up (rescued from
scrapping) by the Ohio Central, and then traded to the Minerva Scenic
Railway. Recently, it was sold to LTEX. Apparently the locomotive is in
good condition, so it may end up being fixed up and sold or leased out.

The engine wears a "red P" paint scheme (which the original 7049 never
wore) and it has Conrail style numbers under the cab, but otherwise it
doesn't look too bad in its museum paint job.

I'm pretty sure that the museum disbanded and the equipment sold off.
