I did some research and discovered that yall are absolutly right. They are GP40-2s. I dont know though if P&L rebuilt them to GP38 specs or not. Good thing I found out before I actually bought any locos
I do want to shoot an email to P&L and see what kind of info they can provide for me and whether they will let me come to one of there yards and shoot some pics.
A little info on P&L. They operate 265 miles of regional rail from Louisville to Paducah, with stops in Louisville, Vine Grove, Elizabethtown,Millwood, Beaver Dam, Jessup, Calvert City,Paducah, and Mayfield. According to their website( www.palrr.com
) they operate 40 units: 1-GP39 2-GP40-2s 11- rebuilt mother/slug sets (GP40-3s/GP35s) 15- recently rebuilt GP38-2s.
They connect in Louisville with INRD, CSXT, LIRC,and NS. In Madisonville with CSXT. In Paducah with BNSF, and CN. And in Princeton they connect with FVRR. They are a full service railroad and handle a wide variety of goods including coal, bulk, lumber, and intermodal connections.
The more I search the more it seems that I might have picked a good rr to model. If not a little more than I am ready for, ut hey isnt that what mrring is about? pushing the limit on all aspects? Whaddya think?
