Surviving GTW Locomotives

Unread post by SD80MAC »

I have started compiling a roster of surviving GTW locomotives that are now working for other railroads, privately owned or in museums. Have a look: http://railroadfan.com/wiki/index.php/S ... ocomotives

If you know of any I don't have on the list, let me know!

Good list. Don't forget GTW 4070 (Alco 2-8-2) undergoing yet another restoration in Cleveland at Midwest Railway Preservation Society. She has a very interesting history, and was one of the last steam locomotives to operate on the Mount Clemens sub in local service.Rode behind her once at the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic, several seasons ago now.

Updated significantly. (Almost) Every locomotive now has a picture of how it appears today. About the only thing I haven't sifted through yet is the GP9 fleet to see which are still around. Have a look: http://railroadfan.com/wiki/index.php/S ... ocomotives

Thank you for putting this together. I'll have some good reading for the next few weeks. :)

Haven't gotten to the GP9Rs yet. In the meantime, I did cover all of their dispositions on the GTW All-Time Diesel Roster page: http://railroadfan.com/wiki/index.php/G ... sel_Roster

i kinda assumed it wasn't done, but i thought i'd ask. i have their dispositions written down here too as i'm that nerd who keeps track of certain sets of power as well. (no idea where its at since I moved though) in a box i'm sure.

GTW S2 #8110 now Tate and Lyle 8110 is the last surviving GTW S2 and the oldest surviving GTW diesel locomotive.

GTW 8197 was stored at the Railroad Museum of greater Cleveland until a few years ago when she was believed to be scrapped. Shes believed to have been the last suviving GTW S4 unless an old GTW Relco unit is sitting around.

GTW CS9 which is an Alco S4 refitted with a CAT motor engine by the GTW battle creek shops #1002 now Corydon Railway 86 still does regular work.
