Our Locomotives Pose Together

I decided today to pull the Plymouth MDT40t outside to pose for a photo with our new GE 25 tonner.  There was a bit of work to do on the GE today, including getting the bell working again.  The bell wasn’t used at the plant and the line was broken.  After a simple 5 minute repair, the bell is back in operation. It is interesting to see the size difference in the 2 locomotives as well.  The Plymouth is wider, longer, lower and heavier at 40tons.  The GE, of course, is 25 tons and shorter than the MDT.  Either way, it’s great to have an operating locomotive, and we’re looking forward to the day when the Plymouth will be up and running as well.
