Pete DeFillipo I own that Fairbanks locomotive. It has been out of service since 1998. I have been working on it since 2010 to restore it for service. I have done extensive work on the locomotive such as rebuilding the entire fuel and injection pump system along with other things. I have to put a few hundred more hours into it before I will be ready to start it up.
Right now I am waiting to have it moved back inside to another part of the complex. I have a large inventory of spare parts for the locomotive and also own a spare OP engine and a blower which I am trying to sell as cores.
Just a heads up about the location where it is parked now. That entire area is private property and is monitored 24/7 by security cameras. It ties into Fairless Works security along with the RR and local police. They will be dispatched out there if anyone goes on the property. Your best bet is to take photos from the main road.
