Steve:

The round "drumhead" sign 1834-1994 celebrating the LIRR's 160th Anniversary pictured on the
front of GP38 #266 is now the property of RMLI and is being stored for possible future display.

Former LIRR unit #622 (photo near top of page) was scrapped by SEPTA this past Winter after
a number of years in sandite gel service. SEPTA planned to scrap both former LIRR cab units
#615 and #622 - but luckily #615 was preserved by a last minute sale before disposition.
