Welcome to another addition of Switcher Saturday. This is your weekly appreciation thread of little locomotives that do big things 🙂. All scales and gauges welcome here. Share a picture, a video, a story, or hopefully at least a smile in these strange days.
This week's kickoff is some new pictures of lokies I have shown before, the old 80 ton center cabs at my work. These haven't been used much in the past 5 or 6 years, since limestone consumption has been down, and most of the stone needed has been delivered by truck. But they may get a new useful duty assignment soon, as the company is considering shipping waste material out by rail. It turns out they both have dead batteries. The equipment operators tried to start them yesterday. I guess they have block heaters, but not trickle chargers. I assure you once these old stalwarts get fired up, I will get some video!
So please share and enjoy. And everybody stay safe out there!
