Notes:  
A

From announcements on several groups, Dick Samuels' OPR 4501 has been sold to the POTB for work train service. The attraction for the POTB is that the locomotive can be loaded on a lowboy and moved to wherever it is needed. Initial word was that the 4501 was temporarily stored in Timber, OR.
