The JSSX is happy to have been recently awarded the contract to carry out some light maintenance on a number of locomotives for the Brownville & Ashland Railroad, owned and operated by Luc Sabourin.
This maintenance mainly involved light paint touch-ups, particularly on delrin plastic handrails where the paint had flaked off, but also a few other small spots, such as the plows where paint had chipped. Also, the JSSX shop forces (that's me) added DCC decoders (the plug-in kind) to 3 of the B&A locomotives.
The red paint schemes of the Brownville and Ashland made for quite a vivid change of pace at the JSSX, where dull and dingy locomotives are the norm.
Here's a look at some of the B&A power fleet...
