I vaguely remember seeing an old Alco that was sitting behind a fence (near the BCEC?). What ever happened to that?

While it was present on Google earth a few years ago, I went looking for it with a friend and it was not there. We assume it was scrapped by the owner of the property it lived on.

Edit: Google Earth imagery from August 2013 shows it there and in the next image from 2014 it is gone.

I think this is the locomotive: ... x?id=62613

It was in an industrial lot until a few years ago. I thought I saw pictures of it being scrapped but I can't find them.
