Default One of a kind GE finds a new home

Former ATSF SF30B 7200 (later wore ATSF 6416 and was retired as BNSF 4276) has found a new home on the Minnesota Commercial Railway in St. Paul, MN. She is now MNNR 42, and wears ATSF blue and yellow with a large yellow MC stenciled on the long hood.

Minnesota Commercial has an eclectic roster of Alcos and GEs, but with the secondhand market full of GE Dash 7s at rock bottom prices for the last few years, GEs are becoming a more common sight than the Alcos.

Great news to hear. Always interesting to know what the shortlines & Regionals are buying, instead of Class 1s all the time in my Country.
