Looking for any info that will help in getting pictures in action out along the line. Been about 20 years since I was there last.
Thanks

IIRC the ALCo's are gone and replaced by GP38's rebuilt from 40's.

One of the Alcos is still around, but it's been converted to a snowplow. I seem to recall another was sold to an elevator on the line as well. Otherwise it's just the 6 second generation EMDs.
