Remarks & Notes 
A sad sight, the remains of 456-4517-649. One of the last 1st generation Alcos on the ROCK, one of the first (recently) rebuilt Geeps, and an E8A. Deadlines after the shut-down grouped engine types together. This is the dead line of scrapped engines. U25Bs are to the left.

These are engines that are either already scrapped, are in deadlines, or they're in severe danger of being scrapped. Not everything can be preserved.
