Vermont Rail System's New CIT-Leased Locos...

Postby steelwheels » Fri Aug 12, 2011 3:42 pm

For those who hadn't seen or heard, Vermont Rail System has taken long term lease of two CIT-owned former RailAmerica leased GP38 models. Former NCVA GP38-3 3801 and GP38 3808 have been relettered for VTR as 3801/3808, for now. These units will likely become VTR 206 and 207 within a year or so as these are multi-year from CIT.

The VTR 3808 is passing the Wallingford depot on July 27.

The VTR 3808 southbound on the B&R Subdivision on July 27.

And in a move that would make the Rutland purists smile (for a second anyway...) VRS is performing a 3-month evaluation of CIT-owned CEFX GP15D 1509and GP20D 2009, the modern day MPI carbody of the RS-1 (ok - use your imagination a bit!). Both units are paired for their initial evaluation and have been assigned to the Florence-Rutland local turn - symbol FLSW.

The duo passing the Center Rutland depot on August 10.

The duo passing the Rutland depot on August 10.

If evaluation proves successful, more of these CEFX units will likely arrive on the property in the coming months.
