Didn't get the number, but I saw one towing a double decker westbound through Bayshore today just before 5pm. Man, was that thing flying! Where would it take it to? Babylon yard? Or all the way to Hillside?

Normally all the way to Jamaica/Richmond Hill, but at that hour they'd probably stash him in Babylon until the rush calms down.

There's been an MP15 sitting in HAROLD today and last weekend, presumably as a protect given the limitations resulting from ESA pretesting. 154 was there last week

Heres the latest for MP15ACs in this posting. 167 and 171 were on the sandite train on 10/26. Interesting that the sandite train this year has no fire protection tank car; just the M1/M3 passenger car. Today 10/29, 152 and 157 on the RF1 were in Garden City today at around 1:45PM with a fully loaded welded rail train. They dropped off the welded rail train on the Garden City Secondary and returned west with the rail recovery train with eight gondolas around 2:45PM Thats all for now.

I caught #152 and #157 twice the other day Friday 10/27, at 10:53 AM in the morning as they were heading to Fresh Pond light as seen on Babylon Branch train #44 in Richmond Hill. At just after 3:30 PM in the afternoon I spotted them waiting to head onto the Main Line from Holban Yard with a 12 car Ballast train for Atlantic Pipe, it went by past Queens Village at 3:51 PM. At 1:24 PM on that same afternoon and location #163 and #158 were headed down to Holban with a flat car loaded of 2 Construction Loaders, #153 was the Jamaica protect and #168 was the protect at Harold interlocking. I saw the Welded rail train set sitting at Jamaica as well on Friday.
