Bluegrass Railway #2043 Locomotive

Bluegrass Railway #2043 Locomotive

Information about this locomotive comes from their website at BGRM.org:

Builder: American Locomotive Co. (Subcontract of EMD)
Class: MRS-1 (Military Road Switcher Model 1)
Built in 1953 for the military, MRS-1 class diesel locomotives were built for the specific purpose of being a motive power source to be used on the rail networks of foreign countries. To do this these locomotives are equipped with special telescoping axles which allow the engine to operate on any track between 3 feet and 5 feet between the rails. This locomotive stands today as a static display at the museum site in the Woodford Co. Park.
