I'm not a podcast guy (I like written words), but this podcast discusses the impact of EPA rules on preservation: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/t ... 0654093978

Four EMD F59's up for sale in California, they had holes plasma cut in their blocks. According to a story I saw, CARB would require the unit to be rebuilt as Tier IV, but I don't know how that could be enforced in another state, would the seller make you promise, to which you would say OH, SURE and then put a relay 710 back in it from Larry's? https://www.govdeals.com/asset/65/3424 Seriously though, it might be a project base for someone looking to tinker around with battery power etc. Edit: I don't know if SCAX 882 & 883 are part of this sale, they were originally bought by Philip Morris for the cancelled Marlboro cruise train.
