97 and 99 are out MU'd behind F40s. 99 was with 101, didn't catch the number that 97 was with. Saw them last Friday also.

99 was the second unit on last Friday's holiday getaway extra (the 10-car train) so should have been on this morning's 2216. My first time riding behind one.

97 and 99 were double-headed on today's 2117. That should also put them on 2140 and 2235 (my usual train home but not today) and then tomorrow on 2208 (probably my train tomorrow) and 2224.

99 has been out and about all by itself the last couple of days. The other two look like they're sitting outside of the entrance to the shops.

97 was MU'ed behind 99 on train 2220 on 7/15/2016. I took a couple of pictures but have had no success pasting them into a post.

97 was MU'ed behind 427 on train 2711 on 7/24/2016.

This morning 97 was deadheading a train back to Western Ave. on its own.

Looks like 97 and 99 are in regular services. 99 has been out alone, while 97 has been MU'd to 101. 98 is still providing shade outside the Western Ave. shop.

97 has joined 98 outside of the shop at Western Ave for the past few days. 99 is still out running by itself.

99 was the protector this morning on CUS track 3. 97 and 98 are no longer outside of the shop building. Perhaps they figured out how to keep them running.

So where have they gone now? I've seen 99 working a Heritage Corridor train (last seen this morning) but I have not seen 97 or 98 at Western Ave. or on an MD or NCS train in a long time.
