While the HMCR has managed to put most of the engines along their line to use, two of them are unlucky enough to be gracing the HMCR's small "deadline" on a spur next to the Huntsville City Schools Annex complex along Bob Wallace Avenue, at the intersection with L&N Drive.
The larger B39-8E, MVPX 8524, ex-SNC 8524, would've become HMCR 8524, but due to it having several mechanical issues that made the engine run much worse than their three other B39-8Es, so the railroad has put the engine back up for sale and it is awaiting a buyer.
The other engine stored here is the HMCR's old EMD SW9, HMCR 8933. This engine served the HMCR well up until 2014, when the prime mover had corroded to the point where the pistons failed to seal properly, so it had to be taken out of service. The railroad is now looking for a new prime mover or a buyer for the switcher, whichever comes first. However, the search for a new prime mover is certainly easier said than done, as it was put here back in 2015. Two years later, it still sits here rusting away.
