I do remember the scrapping spate, un unfortunately for Twin Forks some
of their equipment got mixed in to the deal at great displeasure to the organization.

However Twin Forks got lucky with a second chance, the OBRM was kind enough to donate their 2900s to them.

Without a professional estimate from a restoration outfit. A ballpark comfortable figure of $100k per car would be a good start
