Anyone know why this is sitting on the siding in Silver Springs? From AMP?

I think they parked it there hoping someone would steal it so they can get the insurance money.....

Went to AMF along with a couple of other CN units in February via the R&S. Doesn't look like they did much to the outside other than repaint the ends.
