The track is disconnected however, when the FA is ready to be moved, the track will be reconnected just to move the locomotive(s) out. It is hoped that the Albany port RS-3 will also be removed at that time.scottychaos wrote:the definations are fluid..the owner doesnt really matter..Scot, well said!
any group can say they have bought a diesel for "preservation"..
but if they buy it, then its sits in a swamp for 20 years, and is then scrapped, was it ever really "preserved"?? no, not really.
The most important factor for the equipment in Colonie is, who owns the property that the equipment is sitting on(?) I certainly don't think that its the M&H group. All of that equipment is in danger the moment the property owner decides to take action to reclaim that land. And correct me if I'm wrong, isn't that stuff sitting on disconnected track???
As for the WM FA, seems like that plan has been in the works for at least 8 years now, if not longer.....
