Friend called me at 15:05 and said he saw MEC 500 on flat on a westbound at Rollingsford, probably on POED

GRS 500's LAST JOURNEY

She sat unloved for years at the shop complex in Waterville, ME. For a brief time there was talk of her return to the rails. Alas GMTX sealed her fate in 2013 when she was sold from Pan Am Railways. She quietly passes Rockingham Jct on a cold bleak January day in mid January of 2016.

I ended up rereading the whole thread instead of going to the last page for some reason. All of the discussion of retiring units got me to thinking: What's the status of the 500 and 513 that were shipped out a while ago?

Thanks,

All done and gone. Those carcases were sold to LTE last year to be parted out.

The video was from two years ago if you are referring to the one on the SLR railfans Facebook group.
