Mechanical condition of derelict engines?

I have long been wondering about the engines in Schellville and Willits, specifically, if they could be used for anything. First of all, who owns them? I know most are owned by BUGX, but I have heard…Continue

"Yes, 4347 later received standard SP paint and is now one of the SD9s in the dead line at Schellville. Now owned by BUGX, or so I hear."

Sterling Klinck replied to Emilio Galo's discussion NWP: End of the Line (Is this railroad too far gone for help?)
"It would probably be simpler and much cheaper(though not quite as cool) for NWP to get a couple E or F units for an excursion train. Diesels are simpler to maintain and operate, and they would conform to any FRA standards."

"Any idea when the lease expires/what will replace it?"

Sterling Klinck replied to Drake's discussion What's the story with the Caboose in Petaluma today?
"The NWP caboose would most likely be #1971, an ex-SP C-50-5 built in the mid-1970s."

"NSF, the lumber yard in Healdsburg is Nu-Forest products, and they also have a Cloverdale facility complete with a spur. There is also All-coast forest products right next to them in C'dale, and Capital lumber co in Healdsburg. Maybe the Syar…"

NWP 1501 Fireman Side

"Yes. The lease expired on 1322 and it went to a different railroad, so they are getting this to replace it. I think they bought this, but it could be on a very long-term lease."

NWP 1501 seen on Train Orders

"A beautiful machine indeed, and I think it would go well with a repainted 1922. But, how is NOvato not complaining about emissions?"

"Has NWP ever used this, or are they just holding onto it for the future?"

Fred P Hanes replied to Sterling Klinck's discussion Mechanical condition of derelict engines?
"I photographed two locos at Willits in 2014.   They were protected by chain link fence so perhaps in better condition than Schellville's. Engine 3844 bore the NWP herald, with black paint and red trim.   Engine 4304 was in…"

Andrew Roth replied to Sterling Klinck's discussion Mechanical condition of derelict engines?
"The entire string of equipment in Schellville is owned by BUGX. As for their mechanical condition, it goes without saying that they're in no shape to run without an overhaul. Their controls are all missing and I've heard that most of them…"

Mechanical condition of derelict engines?

I have long been wondering about the engines in Schellville and Willits, specifically, if they could be used for anything. First of all, who owns them? I know most are owned by BUGX, but I have heard that 3804 at least is owned by NWP/NCRA. Is it the only one, or are there others?Secondly, what is their mechanical condition? Could any of them be made operational without a major restoration?Thirdly, does NWP and/or BUGX have any plans for them, or are they just waiting to be scrapped? Perhaps…See More

Sterling Klinck replied to Joshua Woods's discussion Does anyone recognise this?
"According to this, the car in question is the Sierra Nevada, Bryan Whipple's ex-SP private car. I wouldn't be surprised if this was later repainted and used on the Daylight, but I have no evidence of that."
