GP-35 600

AUNW GP35m #66 is former Texas & Pacific #600 - It was later renumbered to MP 2500, then to MP 2617. It has traveled around to several roads, since it was retired by the MoPac. It was sent to the Texas Mexican Railroad in Corpus Christi, Texas, but the road refused the unit. It later went to the Austin & Northwestern, where it was used in service for some time. From there it was placed in service on the Dallas Garland & Northern Railroad. The unit has since been taken out of service by Rail America. AUNW #66 is seen in Austin, Texas in the early 90s.
