Default New Locomotive Costs

1.5 to 2.0 million depending on the order size. Now if you are looking for a deal you can pick up locomotive for as little as $5000.00 When the CN auctioned off some of their older power a Homewood a couple years ago, some of the units were going for as little as that, and they ran. When the WC bought their original SD45's they picked them up of $50,000. SD40-2's were going for $500,000 at that time - 1987. No you can pick up a SD40-2 for $100,000 to $250,000.
