Milwaukee Road ALCo 988
Title:  Milwaukee Road ALCo 988
Description:  This locomotive is not too far removed from operable condition, but has slipped even further down the MCRY's priority list due to the flood damage to their regular excursion diesels, in addition to the ongoing steam restoration efforts.

Title:  ALCo diesels outside the shops
Description:  The paint on these two has faded noticeably since I last saw them in 2009. No. 7 is operational and trades off with 1256 on the regular passenger train. 988 has been "close" to operational condition for several years.

Description:  While much of the media attention has gone to the C&NW 1385, this locomotive has quietly come much closer to being ready for operation. It last operated in 2/2000.
