John Teeter General They scrap these and keep the GE's? SACRILEGE! 8/7/2010 6:24:08 PM
Wendy Crim General That's an amazing shot too bad are they really being scrapped? 3/6/2011 9:05:40 PM
Joe Musolf General Do you think it would be possible to contact NRE to find out if one or two of these can be preserved? I mean, if the CNW SD40-2 in Union is preserved, I say at least one BN SD40-2 deserves the same treatment. 3/23/2011 4:03:14 PM
Victor Butts General Great find. Good power just sitting and doing nothing. 5/28/2011 8:25:26 AM
Justin Cox General I'm sure if someone would like to pick one up for the low price of $150,000 or so, depending of what kind of working condition it is in, NRE would let one of them go. It would be to bad if they all go to scrap. 6/5/2011 9:18:14 PM
Peter Arnold General many are on the way to Brazil thru Houston port. 2/14/2012 12:57:00 PM
Keith Anglemyer General FURX 7264 was pulled from this line, and is now the yard engine in Sharon Springs, KS at the United Plains Ag Distribution Facility. It doesn't go far, and it doesn't go fast, but it moves a lot of grain. 3/20/2012 1:44:06 AM
