Returned BHP SD70ACE locomotives that were sitting on the back lot of Progress Rail Manufacturing Cop. for 2/2 1/2 years were moved 7-19-2016 to NS unused track in Jay County Indiana. Not sure how long the 11 units will be there.

Those are some EMD SD70ACe BHP Iron Ore Australia locos returned to serve as rebuild fodder. They needed space in the plant for the F125 and Export units being worked on.

They are actually out east of Portland on the Frankfort. Shoved out towards the Ohio state line where the RJ Corman line begins.
