    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.
