For the past several months, American Locomotive Company's 2400 & 2500 horsepower four-axle roads-switcher models (both RS and Century) have been profiled in this space. The discussion concludes this May with the photographic overview of the Schenectady builder's Century 425, including original and second-hand owners. It is also worth mentioning at this point that all prior locomotive model related profiles and / or photo essays can be reached from the Locomotive Spotlight sub-menu page.

Similar to the recent work on the General Electric 44-Tonner Survivor roster, the GE 65-ton and 80-ton Survivor rosters have also been reformatted and expanded to facilitate faster navigation, and a number of on-going restorations have been added to the list. Your in-put is solicited to help keep these GE Critter Survivor lists current and a useful resource.

The May edition of TDS includes additional state-based rosters beginning with the letter "N"; short lines and regional railroads based in Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, and New York have been uploaded.
