Locomotives for Sale

In the market for a used locomotive?

No not a model--the real thing. If you are, then National Railway Equipment in Illinois is the place you should go. 

With over 500 locomotives, NRE bills itself as "the largest privately owned locomotive fleet in the world." 

Its used locomotive page shows that it has 187 units for sale, such as the Canadian models on this page.

CP Rail, BNSF, CN, Conrail, CSX, WC, in all sorts of liveries--they've got lots to select from. How you get them home will be up to you.


  1. Sounds like an interesting, modellable scene, John. Another dealer is Larry's Truck and Electric...a Google search shows a rainbow variety of units stored for their big day, with some trees even growing up between them! A great use for incomplete modelling projects of locomotives!

  2. That would be an interesting project, especially for those who own too many locomotives. Wonder if anyone has ever tried it?
