And..this certainty looks like Kodak No. 3:

Not yet confirmed its Kodak 3, but the details match..I would say its 99% likely.
Looks like 3 and 8 have been repainted and are now owned by SSRX:

Number 8 is available for lease, shown on the page linked above, so looks like she wont be returning to Kodak.
Likely number 3 wont either.

So that just leaves No. 10 currently unaccounted for..

Thanks. Less chance of finding #3 in EK colors now.

All should note that EK 6 ended up at the R&GVRR Museum due to the concerted efforts of R&GVRR Museum volunteer Rand Warner, thanks Rand.

Likewise EK 9 ended up at the Museum due to the concerted efforts of R&GVRR Museum Volunteer John Redden, thanks John.

Both of these gentlemen worked at Kodak at the time and cultivated a good working relationship with the KPRR. That relationship led to those units ending up at the R&GVRR Museum. EK 6 has been maintained and operated at the Museum since the early 80's. That is as long as it was in service at Kodak.

Kudo's to Rand and John.....

Cheers, Kevin
