NYS&W 636s Sale and other Alco transactions confirmed

Post by Sandy Burton »

M&E 4264, C-425, has been sold to the WNY&P - not news, but confirmed.
RRPX 4223 and 4228, C-424s, are leased to the WNY&P for one year - again not news, but confirmed.
SIXX #73, C-630M, has been sold to the WNY&P - as expected.

RRPX has purchased all 8 Alco 636s from the NYS&W. RRPX has sold three M-636s to ALCO-C. ALCO-C is leasing them to the WNYP. They are expected to be released to go into service one at a time once they are cleaned and prepped at Cohocton. ALCO-C has an option for a fourth unit.

Both Demonstrator C-636s are economically un-repairable due to freeze
damage.

This information is from one of the principals in these transactions.
