Still waiting for a former Navy unit and the last EMCO unit to arrive. Could be sometime this year.
This EMD just arrived recently:

Does anyone know if SMS has expressed any interest in the Sierra's Baldwins since they're up for sale now? It would be sad to see them leave their home rails, but at least they would be going go a good new home.

I finally caught PRR 9069 working on a nice day, crossing Pedricktown Road, then delivering a box car and returning.

One of the nation railfan magazines ( I can't remember which) said that the SMS took delivery of 2 new exErie Mining units. True?
