  1. Former MEC GP38 256, 258, 263 all sold to Helm Leasing and should be stencilled HLCX somewhere on the carbody or under the cab window; they were leased to Vermont Rly starting Nov1991; went to CN Pte St. Charles for repairs by Feb1992; and in this photo are on their way to the DM&E for lease. The 256 became HLCX 3614; the 263 became HLCX 3617; and the 258 came back from DM&E lease, became NH & Vermont 3800; then HLCX 3619, then to Railink Hamilton/Hagersville #2000 still in NHV paint; and is still in the area on the SOR as 3873.
