MQTX is sending our 20 GP60B units to New Jersey, New York, and Maryland to aid in disaster cleanup. The units will function as stationary generators to power gas stations, water treatment facilities, and pipeline pumps. The lease is donated, effective 11/1/12 thru 12/31/12 (can be extended). They do have connecting storage tanks (old 10,000 gal oil tanks with new saftey equipment and roller bearings, used for stroing diesel and gasoline around the MQT system).

With CIL's 4-axle power supply being stretched to the breaking point, we would like to lease about 10 of your GP35s. We have also started a lease with HLCX for some 4 axles as well. Thinking on leasing these for about 2 months.

Okedokee. Coming right up. We can dig them out of Ensel (Lansing) tomorrow morning after that big power move to the east coast is gone. We'll foward them to Wyoming, where the mechanics will look them over and fix any issues. Probably have them to you by Saturday evening, but it might take a little bit longer if we run into any issues.


There is a lease-to-own clause in the lease as well. It can be extended past 1/1/13 if you want to as well.

Sounds good! Let me know what engine numbers you pull out. We are also leasing some HLCX GP38-2s, so they'll go along well together.

Probably the 10 easiest to dig out. That yard is in dire need of organizing...

The Cincinnati South Eastern would like to lease the 301-305 (GP35's) and possiably 6 more if needed. Let me know if this is problem or not as the CSE is flexiable.

Okay, we will pull five from Ensel Yard in Lansing tonight, and will have them sent to Hughart Yard in Grand Rapids for forwarding to Cincinnati via the PC. Train will run as X-LANGRR-14. How long do you want to lease them for?

Let us know if you need more. You can still buy them later if you want (we can do a trade with former MQTX units we upgrade in GR).

Seeing this made me remember, we sent our remaining 5 MQTX GP35s back to you on T-MNB at the end of last week. They should be back in GR by now...

They were back in Wyoming less than 6 hours after you sent them :lol: . Leased cleared. This means we will send to Cincinnati those five. I'll look up the numbers shortly. Look for them in Hughart Yard in about an hour.

Wow, speedy... :lol: I can't remember what numbers they were, I think they were in the #320s somewhere.

BNSF didn't want them, so we took them at basically scrap price. They all will run fine with a little tune-up after three years at Ensel. We fire them up every quarter and move them 100 feet to keep everything moving.

Thanks MQT3001 you saved the CSE. :D I think a couple of months or until we can get some second hand power bought. Also how much would the cost be at say the end of the lease we like them and want to buy them?
