Power Pack #623 ?

Was this unit to be Power Pack #623, or just a parts donor ?
Some interesting stuff in the yard too.

That looks like it probably was what it was for. The diesel roster here has it listed: http://www.trainsarefun.com/lirr/lirrdieselroster2009.htm

A 5th F7 was purchased, B&O 4535. It was to become LIRR #623 but it never
materialized and was parted out and scrapped.
If Conductors are in charge, why are they promoted to be Engineer???

The Turbine M-1 is of more significance

Something tells me the GTE's pictured are the Garrett Research cars.

Here's one after they arrived.

And yes, the backshop always had interesting things to see, a modified P54, burned out M-1s and wrecked & older coaches. Always looked there when I went to Morris Park back in the day!
