  • Update on Studebaker #3 loco

    Studebaker #3 (an Alco locomotive) still exists and is still for sale by Relco. The engine was for sale for $40,000. but my contact at Relco has said they would entertain offers of $25,000. The engine is in running condition and has had the bearings updated to roller bearings. It would be a shame to lose this historic engine. The deadline for some action is Dec. 1. If someone has an interest or knows a club or museum that would be interested please contact them immediately and let me know, if possible. If anyone wants more information please email me. After December 1 it is likely the engine will be moved to a scrapper.

    I have previously talked with the Indiana Railway Museum and left them a message on Friday about the new offer from Relco. It is not something the IRM needs for its collection, however and the budget may not be there for this engine.

    Any help would be great. Thanks.

    Here is a vintage picture of it that popped up on e-bay a week ago.

        I'll see if my dad still has a contact at the Nethercutt museum. They've been really helpful with his '29 Graham Paige project. I know they were trying to expand their train displays a few years and may have even had a Stude in their collection a while ago. They might like to put two and two together in this case. I don't think money will be the issue here... more like the rarity of the loco and if they have the space to add it to their collection.

        I'll see what I can do.
