Motive Power update

Postby rcbsd45 » Mon Aug 20, 2007 10:40 am

3634-3020-3010 have joined the "broken" line in Binghamton.
3012 was at the shop in Binghamton on Friday but unsure if it was
ready for service.

3634 was thru the AMP program last winter and then broke down
causing several months of down time in Utica. It's my understanding
that it died Wednesday on the local. Ailment unknown. 3010 died on
the SU-99 Wednesday night, crankcase overpressure. 3020 died on the
same trip on the Tier Thursday morning (electrical fire maybe?).
Both 3010 and 3020 were set out of the consist Thursday night @
Binghamton.


At Utica is the 3042 and 2300, in addition to UT-1's 2304.
RMDI has 3 B23-7's there, 1 is allegedly getting fixed for return to
the P&W, the other 2 are for the Finger Lakes.

There is no new work slated for Utica.
After the hospital train went to Syracuse, the passenger car went to
Franklin, and recently several parts and axle trucks were trucked
out. Money may be budgeted for work to the 3042.


3012 and 2302 were delivered to Canadian Pacific's East Binghamton
Yard on 8/19 for work (work unknown).
I know I'm getting old... My insurance company sent me only half a calendar this year!

Can anyone update what engines NYSW has running.

3012
3014
3018
3636
Have been the road power for SU-99/100

1802
Is switching in Binghamton

2062 & 2064
I believe are OOS in Binghamton.

The Alco's are gone, so we can take them out of the picture.

It seems to me, that they don't have a whole lot of road power left?

You're missing a few:

3010 and 3016 are on BH-X today (Caught it at Forks)

3020 and 3022 are outside the shops getting brake tested.

3618 has been around, and I believe is the Syracuse switcher/power.

2012 and 3040 are in Jersey

3042 is somewhere

The other GP18s are in Jersey

2302 is in Jersey, along with 2300? 2304 came out of Utica I think.

And I believe 3634 was having TM issues. I'll ask some guys over there.

2302, 2066, 1800,3040 are the only local power i've seen in Little Ferry the last few weeks.

The road power has been pretty much 3012/3636,3014/3010 and 3018. 3022 came down wednesday.

3634 came down a few weeks ago and havent' seen it since.
3618 hasn't been in nj for atleast a month or 2.
3016? where is this tunnel motor?

2062/64 have not seen in a long time

3040 had some sort of traction motor problem, and 2300 blew a few cyclinders a while back and as far as I've read has not been worked on yet.

Just did a big update to the Susquehanna Survivors page:

And here is the current roster:

I believe the "operating/OOS" info is current..
corrections always welcome.

thanks,
