7205 and 7210 were in service until recently at a grain elevator in Watseka, IL...now I wish I could've gotten pics of them there.

Erie Mining sold all the Alcos off years ago.

These are all new transactions.

Erie Mining sold all the Alcos and Baldwins on their propery. All were shipped out to the new owners.

EM still has some EMDs for sale.

I would imagine the F units and the like. Where are they listed...or is it a private thing?

Hi
When the M&E units were shipped out from Erie Mining, RS-11 # 7209 was being used as Erie Mining's plant switcher. Does anyone know what happened to the 7209? I haven't seen any mention of it since, but the fact they were using it implies it was one of the better units at the time.

Cheers
