You mean NYSW actually acquired some of those GP38-2! Wow, miss a week miss alot. Those units must have been pricy.

I type in Brown because I can.

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.

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.

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.

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


page updated, July 7, 2008:

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)
