Locomotives 8208, 5023, and 5018 left Derby yesterday for NMJ. Looks like they are starting to shipping out the last of the MMA units out of Derby.

All three locomotives are still at NMJ. There sitting on a siding with two of Pan Am Russel snow plows. Starting to look like they were moved out of Derby to get them out of the way.

I was a bit confused, seeing a photo of it hooked to 77 on one of the Waterville switch jobs the other day

Does anyone know if the the Rail World Test Bed (ex-Amtrak 273) still exists at Derby? The auction
results show it sold for $18,000 (no buyer listed).
