Glad to hear it won't be scrapped! Thanks1

Would you happen to know where the P5 that was temporarily put on 489 for the Christmas Excursions came from? The engine used to have a K5 on it (any idea what happened to it?), but ME always dismantles the horn on that unit when being transported and in for work or storage. Thanks
I believe it came off of the #563.

In addition to the 563, the 557 is also apparently for sale:

I just read on the Alco Yahoo group that RRPX RS11 #7205 is being sold. Who is the new owner?

That's above my pay grade. I just fix things. I can say that we have been fixing up #7205 and it now runs beautifully (took it for a couple test spins around the yard).

Well, it's still in Morristown, so I would think it hasn't been sold yet...

It will be soon. Currently serviceable but undergoing some tests to make sure that status doesn't change again.

Glad to hear it. When it's back up and running, will you be sending it back to Maine?
