GB&W RS2 303
Title:  GB&W RS2 303
Description:  ex-GB&W RS2 303 on the C&NW at Proviso, Illinois, October 1979, photo by Chuck Zeiler. Built in February 1950 as GBW 303 (c/n 77916), the purchase price was $142,694.00. At some date the air-cooled turbocharger was changed to a water-cooled version, changing the exhaust stack orientation from length-wise to cross-wise, as seen here. One source indicates this locomotive was sold to the Ann Arbor in 1979, and later it was sold to Rail Rebuilders (which may explain the RRB reporting marks), later moved to Lake Superior Railroad Museum. However, it appears that it now resides at Mineral Range, Inc., WSOR at Horicon, Wisconsin. Sometime during 1988 it was repainted to NYC 8203.

NYC in the weeds
Title:  NYC in the weeds
Description:  RS-1 "NYC8203" is an ex-AA 303, exx-GBW 303, and was restored by the Southern Michigan Railroad Society in NYC paint for a celebration in 1987. Later sold by the SMRS, it lingered on the Lenawee County Railroad and later Adrian & Blissfield Railroad for a number of years. Here it sits at Blissfield during the months between the closing of the LCRC and the startup of the A&B.
