looks like LAL has only had 4 locomotives that have left the roster:
97 - GE 45 ton - bought 1964 - sold when?
(update - sold BY LAL in 1965 to RG&E, then to R&GVRR museum in 1991)
10 - GE 44 ton - bought 1964 - sold 1978
17 - 2-8-2 steam - bought 1965 - sold by LAL to private individual,
who then scrapped the engine in 1970.
originally Buffalo Creek & Gauley 17.
38 - 2-8-0 steam - bought 1965 - sold when? (update..sold around 1977)
currently with the Knox & Kane..
(with the Kinzua bridge collapse, anyone hear about about the potential fate of the K&K engines?)
those are the only 4 engines now off the roster.
then we have:
20 - Alco RS1 - bought 1972
72 - Alco S2 - bought 1978
425 - Alco C425 - bought 1981
420 - Alco C420 - bought 1995.
then in 1996 the four Guilford C424m's arrive.
If there were 10 locomotives on the roster in 1996..that would have to mean GE 45ton #97 and steamer #38 were still on the roster in 1996?!1996
LAL acquires four Alco C424M locomotives, bringing the fleet to ten (two are stored pending further expansion)
that cant be right..
that should probably be 8 locomotives in 1996.
I started photographing the LAL around 1996!
my first LAL photos are of the Guilford units wayyyy down at the south end of the line, right on the lake shore.
anyone know when 97 and 38 left the roster?
and anyone know the current status of the two GE's?
