There's several MP15s that were killed off one way or another, my main bet is the two that died before they got a chance to be repainted. Hopefully not 3100. Also, re;maintaining, who says these things will need to run?

The 3100 lost it's cab when turned into a HEP car for the C-1's,not worth saving,it was a butchered job.
You still need to maintain the outside shell,need to spend $$$ and time to do a proper paint job.
LIRR no long has a paint booth,any repaints were "quick and dirty" brush and roller paint jobs with little or NO surface prep. :( :( :P

My brain still has 101 & 105 as a married pair doing harold protect in the 90s. :)

If 101s staying with ny&a a long while, I assume no more pr20Bs. Good. keep them dirty old diesels employed :)

101 is still around. Gregory Rice caught it Brooklyn and in Bushwick fairly recently.

Shame about the other SW1001s.

Not a shame until we know they're scrap. A couple numberboards doesn't really mean anything

Looks like the bay ridge - maybe that's it's new haunt. I come across the bush or LIC job fairly frequently and haven't seen it on either this last year.

101 is used on all 3 branches. Just depends on what what it's coupled to and what job lands that power.

Thanks to all who posted on this topic.

Last Sunday, my train passed the LILCO siding and with the gondolas gone, a few bogies were still there.

Are the last of the bogies gone ?
