I spotted this engine in Ringoes, NJ with the Black River & Western Short Line. Anyone know anything about it?

It is not a failure on being a fail of all it's true years in-services. It would be a big failure for a Class I or any other regional, shortlines, or leased railroad co's. Basically, my questions on this loco is that I am wondering how much it could pull and how the engine would be started and finally, how the engine can pull that big freight car or passenger car??? is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to - An online railroad bookstore featuring a curated selection of new and used railroad books.
