Jeff Carlson General That's sweet. Way to go NREX! 8/12/2007 6:01:24 PM
Joe Magruder General From what I've seen before, units usually get spray painted reporting marks when they are moving to their final destanation (in this case NRE Silvis) to be scrapped. I suspect that most of the ex-WC SD45's will be parted-out and cut-up. 8/12/2007 10:37:57 PM
T. Man General Is this locomotive operating or DOT? 9/10/2007 11:32:37 AM

Ron Moraca General I've seen a lot of NREX units on the rails here in Montana. Cosmetically, a lot of 'em were pigs, but I'd guess their looks didn't much matter as long as they were mechanically sound. 12/2/2007 9:02:54 PM
