GP20D's and AC44's aren't exactly comparable power and certainly won't be used in the same service. It's likely that the GP20's are holdovers until another motive power deal is delivered upon.

I agree on that. Sorry ment I’m my last post that the GP20D’s would more then likely end up on the Bangor and Newport Subdivision with B23-7 (2003 and 2004). This would free up the GP38-3 / GP38M-3 and GP35U to help the SD40F and SD40-2 on the Millinocket, Moosehead, Stanbridge and Sherbrooke Subdivision.

Or maybe even more likely, they're being stored at Derby.

Keep those damn leaf blower '20Ds outta NMJ! 2003 was paired with 2558 this past week on the Searsport and Brownville runs.

There are two AC4400's at CAD rumored to be for the CMQ...

Potentially more once the CP lease on the other CEFX units expires in May. We'll have to wait and see how they work out.
