Homeward Bound

RELCO SW1200RS 1293 sits in the siding at Bingen, waiting for a lift further east. A note scribed on the cab window on the conductors side reads Destination: Albia, Iowa. The 1293 was still sitting on a stub track in the Wishram yard this morning.

Heritage: Built for Canadian National in 1958, to Ohio Central in 1996(?), to RELCO in(?)
I had a closer look at some of my pictures of the unit when it was in the siding at Bingen. The tires are in very bad shape, so maybe its being stored in Wishram, awaiting disposition.
