MRL SD45 342
Title:  MRL SD45 342
Description:  This is one well traveled SD45. It started life as N&W 1768, moved on to NS 1768 (one of a handful of SD45s repainted for NS), was sold to the "new" Wheeling & Lake Erie as WE 1768, then sold to the Ohio Central as OHCR 1768. Eventually, she ended up going back to EMD, where she had her nose chopped and was repainted into this EMD Lease scheme, but retainted her number to be EMDX 1768. Sometime, I think 2000, she came to the MRL and was, obviously, renumbered 342. Here she sits, keeping company with a bunch of other stored engines.

Title:  MRL SDP45 332
Description:  I know full well it looks like an SD45-2, but it was built as an SDP45 for the EL, and was wrecked. When it returned, it had a 45-2 hood on it. EL only purchased the SDP45 model for the 5000 gallon fuel tanks, and never had passenger equipment in them.

Probably the last LRC unit
Title:  Probably the last LRC unit
Description:  Even though the lettering is scratched off, the LRC (Livingston Rebuild Center) lettering is still fairly visible on this unnumbered 40-some ton GE. I presume it was the shop switcher back when LRC owned the buildings at Livingston. They are MRL's now.
