Full Specifications

ALCO S2 16-52

Built in 1952 as a S2 Switcher for Canadian Arsenals Ltd. The locomotive was stored serviceable and last started in 2014. It was equipped with a remote control system, but that system is not functional. It will operate as a standard locomotive and the batteries were removed and have been kept on a trickle charger. The bearing boxes are checked once a year and topped off with oil. Some of the mechanical/physical attributes include GE 731 traction motors, gear ratio 75/16, 40" wheels with friction bearings, serviceable wheels.

Q- What does it costs to ship a locomotive by flat car?
A- Shipping a locomotive by flat car is often a viable option if the locomotive is older or has friction wheel bearings. As with any shipping, it will depend on the miles between origin and the destination since all shipping is  calculated by mileage. The advantage to a flat car, is that if the locomotive has a mechanical problem enroute and if the railroad does not have the parts to repair. It will get bad ordered and you will be responsible to have someone go to where the unit is and repair onsite. When shipping by flat car, you do have the added cost of a crane and the rental of the flat car. But you have the assurance that the locomotive's physical attributes will not interfere with the movement of the unit.
