You can remove 7214 and 7216 from your rosters. They have been cut up
this week and now are a pile of rubble. These are former LVT/Erie
Mining units.

Are they the 2 that had the fire?

Why didn't they keep them and use one for parts for the other?

As I understand it, the fire occurred while they were being cut up. Assume both units were parted out to benefit the rest of the roster.

oibu, you are correct on both counts although I believe one the prime movers was sold to another short line/tourist operation. It reportedly left town on a flat-bed, destination unknown to me.

Could that Prime Mover gone up to Maine for the other M420? Is there still 1 up there not running?
