I know someone posted this info before but I was wondering if you could update us again on the current status of all the locomotives, dead or running? Thanks, Lee

Scrap,

Is the 156 in the shop, or on one of the shop leads? I'm itching to get a picture of it. Last time I saw it was when it was decked out in grey primer. Wish they ran it on the road like that in primer.

Good Luck! 156 looks GREAT! Being saved for the Santa special! Come down and get your pics then. I got invited to view the new 156 by the president of the company; but, hell, I work there! Seriously, the unit is MINT visually; "scrap" will give it the real test! Just don't "mu" it with my "Valdez 159!"

c'mon Joe... we all know you are the paparazzi train photogragher around here!

Joe, 156 is on "lock down" in the shop. It will stay there probably till the "Fester Claus" special. It just got decaled in new speed lettering. It is the most attractive scrap pile in the fleet!!
Phantom, Ill test run it alright, right into the ground!! The unit was great 3 years ago, but sitting in the rain for 3 years with un-capped stacks probably rotted out the power assemblies like the "junk59" Those two will make the Valdez incident look like a drop of oil in a lake!! Cant wait to MU them LOL!!

It reminds me of some of the cosmetically restored diesels I saw recently at the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania. It's amazing what a few coats of paint can do.

Then I realized the 156 has something else in common with those engines. They don't run either! :wink:

Here's a few of the 156 back in September, just after having the paint grinded down and primer applied.

By the way, how is the 151 running now that its back out on the road?

What's the current status of the fleet? The cold weather exacting a steep price from man and machine?

Only the 9321 is still long term OOS ... every other engine is in "functional" status, save for periodic maintenance.

The normla bag of gripes however still persist, Cranky ASC systems, loud air brake venting, oil leaks too numerous to count ... but it is a far cry from the days of Lesher.

Loud airbrake venting is FRA defect all exhausting including brake has to be outside the cab, its called quite cab modification and it has been in effect for about 20 years now.
It seems that a pipe is missing in brake stand.

What's the current status of the NYA's locomotives? Passing by Fresh Pond on Wednesday I saw 9321 and one of the SW-1001's spotted on the track right next to the fence along Otto Road. The doors along the left side of 9321 were all open. Is that track used as a deadline, or did I catch them during a lull? The yard was full, as usual, from what I could see from out on Otto Rd.

106 body + 9321 trucks = new enginge.
9321 will be , and I quote, "Retired"

New engine is kind of pushing it. How about old engine with different trucks.
