Every year we get snow, an inch or 30"s regardless, we get snow.
And every year the same people make the same mistakes and nothing is learned.

When did Darth arrive for service on the LIRR? First day of usage?

I dug up this old post and I know its been a while but is the LIRR going to/ or did the LIRR use darth vader to plow the mainline between Ronkonkoma and Greenport with the NYA Geeps for the blizzard on 1/4/2018?
Or is darth vader still OOS?
If they plan to use it tonight or tomorrow? I may try going out to Riverhead to see it. Does anybody know what time it may be going out to plow the mainline between Ronkonkoma and Greenport?
If darth is still OOS, what will the LIRR be using for motive power to plow the mainline between Ronkonkoma and Greenport?
