I believe the sold C30-7s have their replacements showing up. As far as I know, these units are temporary replacements until higher-horsepower GEs can be picked up.

I would advise all who have been meaning to take pics of the C30-7s to do so soon.

Anyone know if any of these C39-8's are original Conrail units?
(NS had two sets of C39-8's..some were bought new by NS, and some were Conrail units that NS inherited in 1999)

thanks,
Scot

I believe all three of MMA's C39-8s are ex-Conrail. Two of the three are still in Conrail blue.

They are.

Only 2 units are currently running, the 8202 and the 8208. The 07 remains at Derby, fate undetermined.

The CP power should be gone, replaced with 8 (or maybe 10?) CITX SD40-2s

Is MMA is still looking? UP is going to be auctioning off several Dash 8-40Bs and Dash 8-40Cs.

CR 6004 - 8202
CR 6012 - 8207
CR 6014 - 8208

So nice to know they have gotten a little TLC since they appeared in my neck of the woods in a prior life ...

Two MMA (ex-CN) SD40-2s are listed here for $90K each (they need traction motors and "TLC"):
