I was working at RMDI a few days ago at their shop fixing a 7TM Trackmobile, and these are some items in the works inside the shop building.
* TCB #202 B23-7 ( Texas Central Business Lines Corp) was sitting at Pittston Junction between a cut of cars. Fresh yellow paint.
Inside the shop at RMDI :
*TCB #203 B23-7 in fresh yellow paint.
*TCB #201 B23-7 in the process of getting painted.
( these B23-7's are part of a 6 unit order for TCB being reconditioned by RMDI.
*TCB #206 B23-7 in the process of getting rebuilt. ( stripped of paint )
Former UP SD40 #3440 being rebuilt for the Reading Northern. ( primer mover is out and getting reassembled ).
*shop switcher is GP-10 #7579

#9918 SLUG ( rebuilt from FM H24-66 ) ( this unit was over by the shop with one truck off on blocks. The combos were being taken out to be used for other projects, as will the air brake components. The left over trucks frames and the SLUG body will be moved back to the yard for eventual scrapping. These slugs are a good source of combos.

there are also passenger cars on the property as well as 2 cabooses, 3 5TM Trackmobiles and locomotive parts.
The property IS off limits to the public. No tresspassing.

RMDI is a major supplier of locomotive parts to the RR industry. RMDI is also a rebuilder of locomotives.
