Usual power in M&M land is the 1201. They used to use the 202 there on occasion until 2007, when they ran out of solid material to weld back together on the cracked engine block. They have sent either GP-38 over on occasion, but that is a last resort. The curves in the area are reportedly sharp enough that an SD of any type will not make it through the sidings.
