I was finally able to catch the Sabine River & Northern local with one of the NRE 2GS14B's on their way back to SRN Mulford at Bessmay, TX today. Train is at the SRN-TIBR interchange in Bessmay. They have one other NRE 2GS14B unit on their roster #2223.

Mark, what does OPT stand for under the window? Are these the only units they have? What else do/did they have?

Great shots. I don't know why, but these particular shots remind me of those old Kennecott Copper High-Cab GP39-2's from back in the 80's.

Cool!

Thanks for the compliments guys. The sun came out just in time before they departed.

Jess, they only have one other unit they use regulary in road service in red/white. It's the 2223. They lease out 3 other gensets to the local refineries in the Beaumont area that are in black paint: http://www.greenrailnews.com/owners/opt.html

They have an old GP9 and GP7, an ex-GN NW2 plus a couple of others that I'm unusure of.
