Are parts for the reverser available or can the existing part have to be rebuilt?

Dan is checking with Logan Corp, but they are typically on the pricey side, if the parts are even available. He has found a mostly complete, but used reverser for a C30-7 for about $900. We may just go that route. A new one is said to be about $22k.

I used to be locomotive supervisor on the old KJRY, the damage is all too familiar, but mine was caused by a crewman loosing his balance on Hamilton hill and inadvertently hitting the "CONTROL" permit switch on our ex-C&NW 4252(Cummins-Kato) The KJ has a C30-7 at La Harpe dead. Maybe parts there?

What is the current condition on Burlington Northern 5383 U30C? When is it planned to be in operation? Same question with Green Bay and Western 2407 Alco RSD-15. And are there any plans for the diesels that don't really get mentioned such as: Grand Trunk Western 1951 AlCO RS-1, Columbus and Greenville 606 Baldwin AS-416,Santa Fe EMD FP45, and Milwaukee Road 5056 GE U25B?

What's up with the 2407? It appears that it's been moved indoors. Are we in store for an ALCO restoration?
