The county wants that equipment removed also (along with an NYC combine left behind by SNC) but last I heard was "working with the owner" to make that happen. Not sure there is a drop dead date, but they are obviously being generous and not forcing its immediate removal.

Who owns 5019 and why has it been left there? My apologizes if it was mentioned early in the thread and I missed it.

The 5019 is privately owned and needs wheels replaced before it can move. Replacing wheels can get pricey and I think the owner is having difficulty finding a solution within his budget. Also, SNC wouldn't remove someone else's equipment without being hired to do so. So that is why the 5019 and a green and red coach are still in North Creek.

5019 is privately owned and needs new wheels to be interchanged.
