Alright, they're HPR 45 and 46. You can test them for 15 days, which goes into effect after you receive them. Where do you want them sent?

First week of June.
Stone and grain traffic coming to the line as Cargill want to start shipping 100 car trains from South eastern Ohio to Cincy where they will be interchanged with one of our interchange partners and stone coming from a company in West Virginia and track speed over the newly redone area is 50mph. Also talks of Auto and UPS traffic being handled by the DS-CSE-CS. Also new yard being built in Cincinnati a 35 track yard with engine falicty and will be flat switched.

The 45-CWs will probably be good power for those stone trains, as they're high horsepower high adhesive locomotives. HPR uses them mostly in intermodal but the few times they've been on coal trains they've worked really well.

Thanks for the heads up the crews will probably like that a lot as I know they want to rebuild a branchline to serve a coal mine on a 3.5% grade but hopefully these engines will shine there

I can vouch for the 45CW's, they are very reliable and great pullers for all types of service. I have used them on everything from intermodals to general freights to unit coal and grain trains.

If you want something smaller, I have 11 GP40-2(3011-3021) and 42 GP38-2's(7940-7981) that I would be willing to allow you to lease until you get on your feet. You can lease any or all of these units, so just let me know if you're interested.

The CSE has accuried the Peavine and scrapped the plans of a bigger yard and now have plans to expand the yards at Undercliff. Dispatching has PC trains higher priorities over the CSE trains.
@ ES44AH could we get the 4 GP40-2s in our Maroon and Dark Blue paint scheme
