Why have ROG sold them for?
Is there something wrong with the locos, or has their been a drop in how many locos ROG require?
Reported on WNXX (subscription section) today that WCRC have bought 47812/813/815/848 from ROG, all four are currently listed as active
All now placed into the WCRC Pool, albeit in their current locations. I wonder if it's a purchase and leaseback arrangement until the new Bi-Modal Stadlers arrive, unless they are contemplating hiring some of the unwanted DRS fleet for the time being?
I doubt it, but 47s are probably more valuable to WCRC because of their vacuum brakes, particular for working in support of their steam tours.Could WCRC be planning to dispense with its 57's, and hence have acquired these to have a fleet of 47's only?
