Thanks Attaboy nice pics. I am modeling a railroad shop I am also looking for pics of the transfer table, and the ramp area of the shop.
I will show the pics I have as I find them. This is a picture behind the main shop. this place is now a locomotive junk yard and rebuilds old engines.

hey hobo$$, do you have anykind of contacts at the nre facility thats now there? trying to find some info on 3 loco's that reportedly had nrex markings on them.
No, not really Maybe a phone number since we have worked for them in the past and one guy who restores collectable cars in the main shop for the owner. Nrex is also used around here sometimes by BNSF I heard they were leased units. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to
