As of today all 5 of the RS-11's at S Jefferson road are sans long hoods. 2 of the prime movers have been pulled and the other three will probably go tomorrow. M&E was there today rearranging the consist (using F-40 265 interestingly enough which stayed the night there shut down) so that the other three units were accessible to the crane (2 of them anyway - I figure there at least one more switch out to get the third one).

Once the PMs are gone I imagine they'll start on the heavy steel of the frames and such. Cabs and forward are essentially untouched so far (though some were in pretty rough shape when they arrived) only thing left behind the cab on those where the PM's been pulled are the exhaust fan and supporting internal structure.
