SOO 4203 Update
SOO 4203, Winnipeg, October 5 2009
Geoff Sockett has discovered that SOO 4203 (mentioned here) has been saved from the scrapper, and purchased by the Savage Rail Services Group. It will be renumbered to SVGX 8625. Savage is headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Here is some roster information on SOO 4203. She was a GP9, built for the New York Central as NYC 5949, renumbered to Penn Central 7349, then Conrail 7349. CP acquired and rebuilt her in March 1991 and she became SOO 4203.
