WHITE PASS AND YUKON
Posted by Loco2124 on Thursday, November 23, 2017 1:53 PM

Did the WP&Y ever put the 3 locos up for sale?  Anyone know which ones they were (will be)?

 

Thanks.

Is WP&Y ordering new locomotives or rebuilding existing ones?

So far I believe they are rebuilding existing units. One or two at a time when they do so, IIRC.
