Remarks & Notes 
A Mile Stone for the Pacific Imperial Railroad - [Vernal Equinox 2016 +1 Series] -Congratulations are in order on a job well done for the Pacific Imperial Railroad's first "Interchange Job" at U.S. Gypsum in Plaster City California. The adventure started without much fanfare in, or around the third week of March 2016, when the PIR gloriously, albeit unexpectedly, achieved an economic mile stone in their ongoing rehabilitation of the Desert Line with the interchange of a center beam car with the Union Pacific Railroad at the U.S. Gypsum facility in Plaster City California. Word has it, that in addition to the interchange operation, the PIR subsequently transferred their extensive road power holdings (currently consisting of three former Idaho Northern and Pacific GP-40-2's) from Plaster City, out to the newly established (according to their current business plan) intermodal yard at Coyote Wells. Consequently, the current PIR management team in addition to achieving the aforementioned significant and noteworthy mile stone, added a slightly used TTX center beam car to their collection of moribund rolling stock as a direct result of the interchange (an unnamed witness described it as more of a "capture"). It appears the future is bright for the PIR in the Imperial Valley and it is expected that management will have the concern up and running momentarily stated a spokesperson for the railroad when contacted recently. Another nod of encouragement was acknowledged by members of the backroom establishment of railroad owners and managers, when industry legend Sir Toppom Hat of the English rail syndicate Sodor Island Railroad stated, "we expect great things from those knowledgeable and dynamic individuals that comprise the PIR management structure." Pictured - STBX #4500 sits in the brush on a setout track at Coyote Wells California.

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.
