One of two SD9s built for GN with dynamic breaks. Built May of 1958, retired July 2008. Scanned on Nov 3, 2019. Located in Skykomish, WA, and if a solution isn’t found, will be scrapped soon enough by BNSF. The gondola cars that are to carry it’s scrap away were already parked next to it on another siding.
A gofundme has been set up to raise the necessary funds to save it from being scrapped. If it's not too much to ask, it would be great if some of you guys could help spread this around. https://www.gofundme.com/f/save-599?fbclid=IwAR1cCQ0xdlQKO3RMYu37NvFStcnq9TfjzbYoV4ipLTevN53rHF7r8KxYj38
