we ordered the switchers from the MQT, but we would like the engine you are describing. But, could you build it as a road unit instead of a switcher.

Perfect, that will do great. We are building an electric line Between baltimore and DC, it more of an upgrade of the former B&O Capital sub. What is the designation of this locomotive.

Awesome, we'll order just one EF4150W, just to see what it can do. It all goes good, we'll place an order for more.

Where are the GP50-2s we ordered? We have been waiting a long time for them, and we still have not received them. We can understand if you are busy with other things, but we are in need of the motive power.

Sorry for the inconvenience but EMD is the one you should take it up with. We are waiting on kits from Mexico.

when you get to building our AC60, can you put in spray paint somewhere on the unit, Mld 530? This is going to be a specially painted unit for the Maryland Department of Tourism.
