**p42thedowneaster**Speaking of motive power...I find it interesting that this year the railroad has gone all 2nd gen power for normal valley operations. What is the advantage of running these engines instead of 573 (or 1751 if re-wheeled?) Do they get better fuel mileage? Are they using dynamic braking in the valley?

Course...

573 is 72 years old (46 when it arrived at Conway Scenic!)

252/255 are both 56 years old

216 is 57 years old
