Bay City Locomotive (BCLX)

Unread post by Talk »

Bay City Locomotive Services is a locomotive sales, salvage & leasing company started in 2022 by the minds of the Willmar and Aberdeen Railroad.

Using the Former 'Port Fisher Terminals' property, We have constructed some new tracks and buildings to accommodate our needs.

We have acquired a few 4-axle locomotives thus far

Current Locomotive Inventory:

1 GP9R (Ex. GTW)
1 B32-8 (Ex. WLAB)
1 B40-8 (Ex. WLAB)
2 MP15AC (Ex. CTRR)

If in need of a locomotive for a short or long-term lease or maybe a replacement part, please get in contact with us. As time goes on, we will continue to acquire new inventory.

Your asking price is not out of line for a pair of later model GP38-2's in excellent condition. However, they are 44 years old and I have a few concerns/questions. Do they still have original components and parts? Have they been overhauled or rebuilt? Have they ever been in a accident/wreck?

Also, what is your asking price for the pair of SW1500's?

GP38-2:
2800 had been overhauled during its time with CSXT in 2015 (New Prime Mover), No Accidents except Minor Grade Crossing Incidents
2803 doesn't have any records of receiving any similar work, No Accidents except Minor Grade Crossing Incidents

We Had Rebuilt the Electronics when they arrived on our property.

1500's are 180 or 350 for pair, no known defects

Great! My "mule" will stop by your office and pay cash :) .

Please route GP38-2 2800 to CSX Holland MI. It will be assigned to Muskegon Shoreline to replace a lease unit (from G&W).

Please send GP38-2 2803 to GLC Owosso MI. They will overhaul it. When completed, it will also be assigned to Muskegon Shoreline to replace the other lease unit (also from G&W).

Please send SW1500RS's 1101 and 1119 to Peaker Services, Brighton MI. They will rebuild the engines. Their future assignments are undetermined but I have an aging fleet of 65-70 year old un-rebuilt SW models that I have to consider.

Thank you.
