You wouldn't happen to have a photo or know what the 3rd unit is, I can see a MK co. logo and that it appears to have GE/ALCO trucks under it?

That's BM&LP's truly bizzare rebuilt U25B with EMD F7A innerds and MK's take on a wide nose, plus other assorted strangeness like bar stock grilles over the radiators.

An engine so ugly its cool!

I do have a photo of it that I'll scan later and post. It was numbered M-K 5301. - Tony J.

Still on BM&LP as far as I know. It was used in building the line and then retained for MOW and rescue service since it does not rely on overhead power.
