Remarks & Notes 
ACR 159 rests in the dead line at Steelton after an encounter with a large truck in Sault Ste Marie almost 2 years earlier. The economic downturn of the early eighties was not kind to the ACR's traffic mix of mainly forest products, steel and sintered ore and many sevicable units ended up spending time stored at Steelton. This elderly geep was never repaired by ACR.

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.
