Equipment moved from Colonie or Glenmont?

I heard a report that the derelict equipment had been moved from Colonie or Glenmont? Anyone confirm or deny?

The Colonie stuff was still there last week with no sign of any sort of prep for movement of any sort.

Don't know about the electrics down south, though.

If it was the Glenmont equipment it would have been a huge, expensive project and I'm thinking pretty hard to keep under the radar screen. However, you never know. Equipment is visible from the road so maybe somebody can do a driveby and check. If they were brought out on the south end at the power plant there should be large mound of dirt where the tracks had to be uncovered. Would have been 8 pieces of equipment total, and the power plant had wanted to do it only once and to get it all out at one shot.

That was my understanding- the electrics were on isolated track.
