    Default Narrow gauge diesels

    There's been a lot of activity in the 3' tourist railroad world recently, all of it diesel related. You'll recall the devastating forest fires in the Colorado rockies with many fingers pointed at the D&S locomotives.
    A part of the repercussions of the fires is the conversion to oil firing of the D&RGW engines used there, the K-37, 493 being the first, having just returned to service...,395493

    Another part of the fallout was new -yep new- diesels for the D&S, #1201 & 1202 (no debate will be entered into on the paint scheme)

    Not only new locos, but D&S have bought 4 White Pass Alcos

    The Alcos are being replaced by new diesels built by NRE in Mt. Vernon, Ill., part of a cancelled Australian order.
    The Australian version

    They already own a varied fleet of centre-cab diesels, former steel works locomotives

    And Porter 75 tonner, #1203. Originally from the US Gypsum Plaster City operation via a number of owners including the Georgetown Loop operation...(it somehow got mixed up with Pakistan despite being ordered by USG's predecessor),397676
