DH BLW RF-16A #1216



DH BLW RF-16A #1216 photographed at Wells, Michigan on 27th April 1982 by J M Seidl, scanned from an original Kodachrome slide now part of my personal collection.


They were to be scrapped in 1974, but were saved when the Delaware & Hudson Railroad purchased both units from the scrap dealer in exchange for an equal value of scrap steel. They were used in freight service and in passenger excursion service on the D&H until late 1978, when they were purchased by Illinois-based Castolite Corporation. The pair was leased for use on the Michigan Northern Railroad in 1979. Both units suffered mechanical damage and have reportedly been stored since 1981 on the Escanaba and Lake Superior Railroad inside a warehouse that is inaccessible to the public. The units have been photographed outside of the building as late as 2012, with roofs and prime movers removed. (Info from Wikipedia)
