Dakota Southern Railroad

Trains magazine reported that their Alco C-420 #213 is still in service, but the DSRR will be returning some EMDs to service when they reopen trackage that is being rebuilt.

Here's #213 in last month:

Some good info on the DSRR at Wikipedia:


This page has some older pics of the DSRR:


Looks like they had an S-1 at one time.

Per the railroad, 213 is o/s with a blown TM, and will not be repaired. Unit is up for sale, railroad will consider 'all reasonable offers'. Locomotive is transportable on its current wheels. Railroad has a spare TM for the unit.

Is this ALCO C420 still for sale?
