Saw this unit tied to a grin tran in the ACWR yard in Aberdeen NC. Have no idea what the story is on it or if was going to the ACWr or just left on the train.
PRSX 2002 is the first genset type locomotive from Progress Rail. I haven't heard an official model number yet, but the unit has a trio of CAT C18 engines under the hood, each rated at 745 hp. This give the locomotive a combined HP rating of 2,235 hp. From what I understand, it will be on the ACWR for at least a short while. Good catch.

The unit is built on a former Helm, C&O GP38 frame. For more roster info on this unit, check out my page for it at http://www.trainweb.org/gensets/progress/prsx/2002.html.

Bill, finally got a model designation for this Genset from Progress Rail.
