breathing new life, into the oldest thread in this forum......

In February 2008, the S2 broke. It was listed as being too expensive to fix. The elevator leased a Larry's Truck GP15. That locomotive was found to be very slippery on the rails.
They checked with another supplier for repair and found that the loco could be repaired for far less than the original estimate. Parts are on order for the repair and they are considering building a shelter for the S2. (March 14, 2008)
