Rare Power - Alaska RR GP-49s En Route To Texas

The Alaska Railroad sold its GP-49s for a second life in Texas and they recently made their way through Denver on a BNSF "dead in consist" move. Kevin Morgan has the pictures and the specs on these one-offs over at ColoradoRailfan.com. According to AlaskaRails.org, these two are the only ones going to Specialized Rail Transport in Houston. The rest have already been sold.
