Default New power for the Wellsboro & Corning

No surprise here, SD40-2s are cheap and plentiful, and as traffic recovers they are being snapped up. From today's Progressive Railroading:

Wellsboro & Corning adds four six-axle units to locomotive fleetOn March 11, the Wellsboro & Corning Railroad (WCOR) took delivery of four SD40-2 six-axle locomotives.

The units are equipped with 3,000-horsepower, turbo-charged, V-16 engines that use microprocessors to boost efficiency, according to WCOR, which is wholly owned by Myles Group L.L.C. The additional locomotives will increase rail-car moving capability by 120 carloads and support a recent increase in business, Myles Group officials said in a prepared statement.
