Where did the wood PFE reefer in the moving days pictures come from. I know we have the beautiful R30-28 fully restored. This car doesn't appear in the web site roster.

Bill, The 1990 Roster has the PFE #68428; this may be the reefer that we saw moved. It is a rare car and deserves a paint job. Ted Miles, IRM Member

The Hick's blog lists it as Fruit Grower's Express FGEX #55407. Arrived in Union June 2016.

I see the museum is acquiring an Amtrak AEM-7. Will it be running, or is it just going to be a display piece?

Hi Matt To my knowledge the Amtrak AEM-7 will not be operational in the foreseeable future Thanks for your interest Roger

If IRM acquires an AEM-7 it can't operate off the museum's 600 volt DC overhead since it was designed to operate off 11,000 and 25,000 volt AC. So if one ends up at IRM it pretty much will be a display piece like the PRR GG-1 that IRM cosmetically restored some years ago.

It would be rather difficult to operate an 11,000 Volt AC locomotive on our 600 Volt DC wire.

The PRR caboose is looking good. Thanks Mr. Humphreys, Rogan and Peterson. Are donations still needed for ATSF caboose #1400? And is this Santa Fe caboose a candidate for indoor storage in the next barn? I would be happy to donate towards its preservation and conservation. Thank you IRM!
