I was thinking along the same lines. The irony is that they may not be used for a while as the railroad does some work to get the track ready.

It's been sold to the Florida Central. That leaves them with just the three SW900s. 92 is OOS, and 91 is still at Circle S leaving 90 in regular service. Although they do have a G&O SW1500.

I'm hearing unconfirmed word that the L&C are getting some SD40-2Ts. I don't know if they're coming from the Yadkin Valley. I need to hit up a few of my sources, but I'm healing from two more...
