Amtrak's shops at Beech Grove, IN, is the destination for all Amtrak equipment in need of repair or major maintenance. The shops were originally for the Big Four and New York Central. Occasionally, unneeded equipment may be put up for sale to the general public. Potential buyers will be allowed on the property for a couple of days to inspect the sale items. They are provided a detailed listing of the equipment, including date of manufacture, original owner RR, mileage and condition. Gary Gurske and his friend availed themselves of the process. It results in a rare opportunity to this massive facility.
