Leased muscle arrives

Business is up and more motive power is needed - especially shoving on the end of through freights heading up the 3% grade to Cascade - so the Cape Ann brings in two leased GE U36-B's from Locomotive Leasing Partners (LLPX).

LLPX 6002 (front) was obtained working on eBay for 99 cents - no other bidders.
LLPX 2806 (rear) was obtained "dead" on eBay, and repaired in the Cape Ann shops with drive train parts from a junked Bachmann F7.
New traction tires, LED lighting, drive train clean and lube, paint and decals - and these two units are back in revenue service again.
