Not to barge in on this, but what kind of condition is the SD35 in? The Delphos & Eastern might be interested in that unit.

there is actually 5 SD35s, but they don have numbers. they are a fair condition. The orignial WM paint is visable, but is faded from sunlight and the elements. 3 of them are operable, the other 2 might need some work done.

heartland can have the SD35s. You guys can deal here if you like.

I'm interested in the GP7s, GP9s, & SD9s. How many of each do you have, and in what condition?

3 GP7s, 5 GP9s, and 2 SD9s. The GP7s are in good shape. One of the GP9s need a primemover. The SD9s are good, but one needs new motors. The GP7s still wear a (faded) B&O paint scheme, The GP9s are in both WM Speed and Circus, and the SD9s still have B&O shemes.

Are you talking Traction Motors on the SD9?

yes, new traction motors. We got it from the B&O without motors, it was stored at the Cumberland shops (when it was B&Os) and it sat on heavyweight passenger car trucks. It still sits on those trucks.We put a new primemover in it a few years ago and it used to be on the reserve power list.

With the C425s rebuilt, the SW9s sold, and the GP60W/B units rebuilt, we are now down to just 10 units on MQT not in MQT paint, and none of them are currently operating, since they are GP60s waiting rebuilds in Wyoming Yard.

Down to just six units, and all of them are inside the shops in Wyoming being worked on, so it is a guarantee none of them will come out without a new dip in MQT paint.
