Current status of WNY&P 6 axle power?

Postby frankgaron2 » Mon Jul 13, 2015 2:39 pm

Hi All:

Wondering if someone can give us an update on which 6 axle MLW's are active? I'm hoping to get back up to the Buffalo Line & chase this summer but am unsure as to which if any 6 axles are being used these days?

Also, are there best days/times to catch the Driftwood turn? Last time I was up there we managed to pick the ONE day they weren't running a single train. Would like to avoid that if I can this time lol...

I think there are at least 6 in service at the moment. The 630 and the 5 mentioned in the attached Link.;action=display;num=1436166123
The ones referred to here are likely 41 43 85 637 638, all M-636's.

There's only one Alco in NZ. 8-(

I was out there recently and two six axles were missing: 631 and 630 (wheel work). The 433 (a C430 ) was also missing.

The October 2016 issue of Railfan & Railroad magazine has an article about them.
