Update: We are expecting these to move most likely Sunday morning. On
Saturday, they were reported to be enroute to Whitehall yard. Could
arrive on the Whitehall to Rutland job overnight/early morning. We're
assuming they will not arrive running on their own power, just hauled
in-tow from Whitehall yard. Picture above shows them in-tow on Canadian
Pacific enroute. We're crossing our fingers for VRS that this helps
solve their need for power. Sharp looking and hopefully amazingly
New motive power for Vermont Rail System is
due to Sunday or Monday in Rutland, in the form of ex-Santa FE B23-7's lettered
NREX 4211 and 4212. NREX is the reporting marks of National Railway
Euipment Company, "the world's largest independent locomotive
manufacturer". They perform complete locomotive overhaul and apparently
leasing of locomotives (which are hopefully some of their sharp looking
rebuilds). VRS most recently had a demonstrator NREX N-Viromotive
locomotive running across the system. (RRA members would no doubt
prefer VRS buy every RS-1 or RS-3 they can get their hands on and paint
them heritage green..
