Sigh...You know there is one other Railroad Museum worth
mentioning here. The National New York Central Railroad Museum
in Elkhart, Indiana. Since these Sharks are ex-NYC, and they are
in Michigan, we're a heck of a lot closer than Baltimore. I will
admit we do not have the resources at our disposal the B&O
Museum has but we're getting there.
I also dispute the argument that these units should be kept in
storage. Why should something with historical significance be
hidden away? If they were brought out into the light for the
public to see they would have more value than being parked
inside a dank, dark roundhouse. I will contact the EL&S to see
if they may be receptive to some kind of an arrangement.

You know, the B&O Museum might be just the right place for the
Sharks. They received a U25B a couple of years back that they
were going to preserve and paint for the L&N (I understand it
was an X-L&NLong live the PC and SCL---twin kings of 13-D paint!

Yes, it is ture - some guy stole (and was caught) operators manuals or
something from EL&S, and another guy tripped and decided to sue them (not
sure what happened with that) - thanks to those two, we mnay never see the
last 2 RF16As.......
