This was a project only from a few months ago.

PROUD TO BE OUR NEW SHOP SWITCHER 8)

Now it is coming out of the shop. Got it running great (DIESEL TOO).

The specs on the little Brookville:

Model: BMD
Gauge: 42"
Weight: 3 tons
Road Number: L-21

Last operated 2 years ago in Missouri at an underground lime mine. This unit serviced the kilns on an elevated structure.

More of the original story:

**The only thing left is to put new BROOKVILLE SIGNS on it that we are having laser etched currently to match the existing sign that was removed.
**We also might install a protective grill for the radiator.
**Install new seat

Greg,

We will spare you guys on the technical details on this one.
We are working on the second unit which is going through our complete restoration process.

Keep watching when we post the second unit.
