T.R.R.A. All Time Roster
All-Time Diesel Roster
This is the most complete roster I could find, it is however lacking some information due to the fact that the T.R.R.A. now rosters a sizable fleet of second hand six-axle power.
TRRA #1751 .......... EMD SD7R
TRRA #2204 .......... EMD GP38
TRRA #2205 .......... 4-axle road slug
TRRA #2206 .......... 6-axle road slug
TRRA #3001 .......... EMD SD40T-2
TRRA #3002 .......... EMD SD40-3 (SD45 carbody)
TRRA #3003 .......... EMD SD40R
TRRA #3004 .......... EMD SD40-3 (SD45 carbody)
TRRA #3005 .......... EMD SD40T-2
Most of the 2nd Gen. six-axle units are of Southern Pacific heritage, while the SD7 (rebuilt by MRS Shops with a low short hood) is a former Pennsylvania RR locomotive.
I'd like to thank Keith Belk and Scott Ikemeyer for compiling this data for St. Louis Railfanning.

St. Louis by way of Valley Jct., and several other smaller branches and operations.
The T.R.R.A. runs regular transfers to the Manufacturers Railway Co. at their "Brewery Yard", to the Alton & Southern at their Gateway Yard, to the KCS at their former Gateway Western yard in E. St. Louis, IL, and occasionally to the Union Pacific at their Dupo Yard in Dupo, IL.
