         Hope you meant it was 'running' today instead of 'ruining' .

That's great! I caught the S-2 running (and the RS-1 parked) in 2003. When I heard they'd gotten an EMD, I figured that was it for the Alcos. Happy to be wrong.

Wow! The 292 is still alive!  I caught it at the same place - Kaley St in Orlando, back in 2002 and was surprised to see it working then. I exclaimed to the engineer that it was the first RS1 that I had seen in 30 years. Little did I know that it would be around for another 17!
