The LS&I originally leased 8 AC44 engines. They also had 4 U30's still running. The U30's were used only as back up for the AC44's. To save money on the leases management sent 2 AC44's to Minnesota. We have one AC44 out with a bad turbo and one U30 with the motor torn apart. Our back up engines sit in Minnesota. My grandpa used to call this "stepping over a dollar to pick up a dime". Winter work will be 2 crews day and night shifts. Loading rail vans and switching freight.
