The MLW switcher currently owned by Rocky Mountain Rail Society of Calgary, Alberta (owners of steam loco ex CN6060). The S-3 was moved in August 2002 from Exshaw to the Alstom facility in Calgary. Plans are to restore to operating condition, but this will no doubt be a fairly long term project. While preliminary indications are good, final decision awaits complete inspection. At a minimum, we know that the wheels will have to be replaced. (report by Dale Olson)
