There are several pages of interest in GE Model 44 tonners down below. So here is an update on our three
When many Interurbans were taking down their wire in the 1940s these GE locomotives were just the ticket.
We have Visalia Electric #502 (GE, 1942). It has had one of the Diesels re-built and is in operating condition. It is our rescue locomotive if AC power goes down, or equipment breaks down.
The Sacramento Northern #146 (GE, 1946) It is being overhauled; with two generators rebuilt and one Diesel in the process. It will be re-painted into SN colors.
The Salt Lake, Garfield & Western DS.2 (GE, 1945) is on display in car Barn Three at the head of a short freight train. It will be a cosmetic display. It is ex New York, Ontario & Western 101.
We also have Navy Diesel L.2, that is being kept for parts. And when the Sacramento Northern #145 was scrapped; we sent a truck back to Ohio to obtain a pile of Diesel and other parts.

Hi Ted, a couple of corrections. VE 502 was built in August 1945. The Salt Lake Garfield and Western locomotive is D.S. 2.
