Wow--they wasted no time on that NHN Geep--It was at Avon, In on jan 15 in tow west.  I wonder if it's a rebuild in kind or if it went to scrap? It looked to be in pretty good shape, inside and out, really.

I only see one F69PH-AC carbody. Is the second one there too somewhere or anyone know what happened to it? I was at NRE in 2006 and both were there at that time, IIRC. In 2001 I tried to buy one back from NRE for a project but their price was more than the project budget would allow.

Looks like alot of engines should go steel mill to be melted down into New Steel.

Being rebuilt.  NHN's other GP38-2 is supposed to follow once this one comes back.

Do I see an ALCO Century 415 or is it a GE 100+ ton center cab in that dead line, about 10 o'clock in the second shot?

Sorry if it's been discussed before.

Thanks Ben. I'd be really supprised if they ever find a buyer or a use for them. Thirty years ago I designed the modifications to the swing hanger trucks on these locomotives which makes them really unique and useless for almost all other applications.

Several former First Union lease units (FURX) in there.
