Why did they stop using the engines, being stored out of service at Lakeport?

We hear those ALCO S1s #959 and #1008 are owned by the State of NH. One ALCO may need traction motor work, and not sure what ails the other one. Both have been stored at the Lakeport Engine House for a number of years now.

No really related to the P&L but worthy of a mention. Pitman's Freight Room has closed its doors, with its last event being held yesterday. I never was in Pitman's myself, but I understand they did a little bit of everything from small concerts, plays, retirement parties and weddings. Another worth mentioning, is their caboose that sits on the southern corner of the building, the caboose was originally connected to NEGS/P&L but was moved off the spur and the spur severed when the WOW trail was built about 10 or so years ago. Unknown if the business will be sold, today with Covid, I cannot imagine the market is too hot for these types of businesses. It will be interesting to see what happens with that caboose, something to keep an eye on for sure.
