    "National Rail Equipment (NRE) out of Mt. Vernon, Ill., to deliver two new E3000CC-DC model locomotives. The locomotives will include NRE 5650 trucks and GE764 motors and have 3300 h.p. EMD16-645 with the capability for a single engine to haul up to 16 of our passenger cars on tour. This locomotive is 65 feet long and weighs 265,000 pounds but integrates easily into our existing track structure and facilities, well within the AAR plate C clearance envelope. These will arrive in time for our 2020 season."

    This is quoted from an interview about the recent upgrading of the White Pass & Yukon. Anyone know what this loco looks like?

    EMD once again invades on GE/Alco territory......:unsure:

    I wonder about the rumors they might eventually re-activate the line on to Whitehorse.
