-The two restored PRR E8s #'s 5711 & 5809 were being prepped this afternoon at the Juniata Terminal shops for the upcoming Toys For Tots excursion train. I was told this will be for the "Capitol Region Toys For Tots Train" out of Binghamton.

Private Car Chapel Hill went on Train 43 from NYP this morning to Philly then onto Juniata Terminal in Penn Valley, PA. I spotted the trainset sitting at Sunnyside yard.

I thought Mr Levin was not going to upgrade his E units with PTC, and that these were out of the mainline business this past summer

John,
The E8s have indeed not been upgraded with PTC. I believe this was the first outing since the PTC mandate. Because of this, the two E's and consist were picked up by, and trailed a pair of Norfolk Southern SD60s and moved about in that fashion for the duration of the excursion.

Kinda lame if you ask me, but that's now the name of the game.
