Eastern Locomotive Leasing is a company formed on June 20, 2012 by the Appalachian Western Railway to make some extra money to support a massive capacity project that is about to take place. The SD45-3's are in great shape and were just rebuilt to -3 standards in 2005. The C39-8's aren't in the best of shape with rust on most, but plans are in the works for rebuilding them.

ELLX has announced that the 55 C39-8's will be rebuilt with GE's 4400hp GEVO-12 prime mover and Evolution series electronics. They will be classified as C39-8R.

The plans to rebuild the C39-8 have been changed to only upgrading the electronics to Evolution series standards. The current 7FDL16 prime mover will be rebuilt and 40 of the 55 C39-8 will be converted to burn a mixture of 70% Compressed Natural Gas and 30% Diesel fuel. The natural gas conversion will take place in the AW Roanoke Shops and utilize the same modifications proved successful by Ferrocaril Central Andinos.
All rust damage will also be repaired.
