AC Units En Route to WNY&P

Two AC46CW locomotives are en route to the Western New York & Pennsylvania Railroad as the short line begins the process of replacing its last remaining Montreal Locomotive Works units.

Nos. 6006 and 6007 were being sent from the Arkansas & Missouri Railroad.

Upon arriving at the WNY&P, the units will be used for parts. They are painted in a CSX livery with WNY&P markings.

Trains magazine reported on its website that operation of the MLW locomotives is likely to continue through the summer and possibly into the fall.

The six-axle  MLW units are assigned out of Olean, New York, on a Salamanca turn that operates four days a week.

The first operable AC unit is expected to be sent to the WNY&P in mid- to-late July with an expected August arrival.
