The Hobo Railroad's End Cab Switchers
In between the Hobo Railroad's "Santa Express" and "Journey to the North Pole" trains, here's a peak at four end cab switchers that are home to the northern portions of these New Hampshire rails. Their other two locomotives not pictured are #302 (GP7) stored in Meredith and #1921 (GP9) stored on the north leg of the Lincoln wye.
From nearest to farthest..
#1590, EMD SW1001, built 1973, former CIT Group, Norfolk Southern, Conrail, and Reading.
#1012, EMD SW1000, built 1970, former LTEX, BNSF, BN.
#1186, ALCO S3, built 1952, former Wolfeboro, and B&M. Named for Edward Clark (Stored for winter)
#958 ALCO S1, built 1947, former Maine Coast & Maine Central. There's nothing wrong with 958, those blankets help keep a 1947 built locomotive bundled up, warm, and ready to go in December if needed.
