Sheffield Steel Sand Springs,OK

I came across this SW-?? down in Sapulpa, OK on Feb 22, 2014 dose anyone know anything about this unit? The cab number is 113 there was a set of reporting marks on the cab but they were in such bad shape that I could not read them. I'm wondering if anyone has a history on this unit.

Is that on display, or a parts unit? Very obviously not usable at it sits!

The track that the loco is siting on is at the Vary end of the Tulsa & Sapulpa Union Railroad. The main line crosses over the street on the Cab side of the switcher and go's directly into the Locomotive storage shed. I just learned that this unit is being fixed up by the TSU crews and will be heading to the East coast I do not know who bought it.

That's the closed steel mill in Sand Springs. They (Gerdau Ameristeel) own the Sand Springs Railway.
