MP15DC #1360 and GMD1 #1415 are headed back to our yard finally. We will have some work to do to get them back up and running due to stolen parts and vandalism while waiting forever to be moved off their last assignment. But they should be ready to go in short order upon their return hopefully next week. Windows for the GMD1 are on order.
If you need good reliable power for a lease assignment or for sale give Pat or Ty a call at the office for more information and rates. 509-624-7207
Thank you Chris Ivins for the photos and the progress report.
The Cummins GP38cc (GP38 Cummins Clean) is coming right along and should be testing in May. This locomotive is available for Lease / Sale / Financing around June or July and is fully Tier 3 emissions compliant.
At 2100 HP. This is not a Gen-Set, but rather a re-power utilizing all the EMD components we are able too for ease of maintenance of parts availability.
Please call our office and talk to Pat, Ty or Todd for more details and options for purchase / lease
Another shot of the standard air compressor drive-line utilizing a Reich flex coupling for testing purposes. We should be able to go back to the standard off the shelf EMD flex coupling for the next re-power once the torsional numbers are recorded
