Railroad Locomotive Graveyard

Burlington Northern Railroad 9917

Located on the tracks of the former U.S. Steel McDonald Works are dozens of locomotives either in various stages of disassembly or intact, awaiting refurbishment.

LTEX Rail has been in the business of scrapping locomotives for years, with its deadline tracks chock full of first- and second-generation locomotives and switchers from Amtrak, Canadian National, Union Pacific, Conrail, VIA and many other companies.

LTEX Rail also contains an inventory of more than 400 EMD and GE locomotives ready for immediate delivery to clients across the United States, whether they are looking to lease, lease to own or purchase. Nearby, a massive warehouse contains thousands of used and rebuilt components for all locomotives.

The site was home to United States Steel’s McDonald Works, which closed in 1981.
