15243Re: Bigelow Sanford Mack
- Dec 15, 2011I found a reference online to a Bigelow Sanford GE 25-Ton switcher working at another Bigelow Sanford mill in CT. I am assuming it's the same one. The GE builder's records indicate that the company only owned one 25-tonner. We assume it was in Amsterdam based on the lettering in the movie clip.
Here is a photo of the locomotive taken in Connecticut:
Here is a photo of the locomotive in more modern times:
The builder's number matches, but it appears to have been modified some over the years. (See below.)
That is the locomotive dealer's Web site referenced in the preceding Web site. It makes no mention of that locomotive (b/n 29854) currently in inventory. But... I did find this... so... who knows?
It does reference that the locomotive was reconditioned/rebuilt, which explains its spiffy appearance on the Trainweb site.
I can't find anything further. Perhaps a friendly email to that locomotive dealer is in order, if someone cares to undertake that measure.
