Besides NRE, who do you know will rebuild an Alco locomotive in the U.S or Canada?

Canada Allied Diesel and Progress Rail off the top of my head. I spoke with Progress yesterday about doing some contract work.

Most likely by recruiting people from companies that already rebuild locomotives.

I understand that point, Alcoman. We will see how much business they have to buy before they get into trouble.

The State of New York is not exactly the best environment for a start-up heavy manufacturing business. You know-the taxes...

I think the building is owned by the town village or county IDA which certainly cuts down on the tax problems, it may also be in an Empire Zone.

*ist ds, is that name taken from the Pentax digital slr line?
