There was a time when the railroads would trade-in their knackered units for new ones. As one picture caption put it, going back to the factory where you were made was kinda like driving to your own funeral. And bits might be re-used, particularly trucks (bogies in UK-speak) so knocking a bit more off the price.

What happens if you want the one in the middle?

It's one of the advantages of Kadee couplers - you can lift stock out of a train without any problem. Can't do that with Tension-locks.

 

:D ;) :jester:

NRE announced back in August that they were closing the Silvis facility.

This is an updated flyover from 2 days ago.

Like Toton and Long Marston rolled into one. Lots of EMD SW1200-1500 switchers. Hope some of them escape.
