This is confirmed. 502 is now holding at River Road off I-76 in Philly. Has three units already so it looks like it could be a daylight run down to the Plant.

Good luck!

Per Mainline Dispatcher it is not moving from Falls until tonight. So they are tied down currently at Falls.

Just like that 503 left last night and as of now looks to be west of Philly near Abrams Yard. That was quick!

It appears that the BL England Generating Station's days are numbered. According to an article in the Press of Altantic City, two of the three units have already been decommissioned and the plant will shut down entirely in May. The plan to build a natural gas pipeline is also being scuttled. None of this bodes well for the future of the Beesley Point Secondary, especially past Tuckahoe.

Fair use quote:
UPPER TOWNSHIP — There is no longer a need for a South Jersey Gas pipeline to the B.L. England electric plant in Beesleys Point, after the plant owner said in court papers Wednesday it no longer plans to repower the facility with natural gas.
