Has the locomotive been sold?

It is now sitting on the just off the McLouth bridge near the "ConRail?" access switch.

It's now owned by Great Lakes Locomotive (GLLX). It's an SW8.

Big Mike will move today from its current location to Trenton yard with the help of Conrail's Trenton 3 job. Destination after that unknown.
