A recent visit to Topton, PA, eastern end of the East Penn Railway's branch to Kutztown, where a conversation with the rail crew confirmed that both of the ex-CHRR 80-ton Whitcombs are gone. They were acquired by a buff group and shipped to Topton with the idea of using them for excursion service. It's not clear if they ever paid NS for the shipment and apparently they were behind on their payments to the EPRY as well. They cut up one (the one that ran on the CHRR - the other, I think, was never operational) in 2005, at least in part so they could say they had the ONLY one left of its type. (What's wrong with saying they had the last TWO of their type?) The EPRY wasn't getting paid its rent and eventually had enough by 2006. The buffs started to scrap the last one but the EPRY finally called in a scrapper to do it right, and soon it was gone too. So much for ill-conceived, under-funded buff plans.
