Yup. 708 now showing as prep-to-ship to Alstom for rebuild on NETransit.

207 was spotted on NS train 14R in Moosic, PA today. Appears to have brand new wheels and a fresh shrink wrap "paint job."

207 was a Delaware Car outsource.


How can it be that it's taken 9 whole months to get only 4 of 10 cars back from DC that only needed their 4-year inspections updated??? Mass Coastal got the same job on their 3 assigned cars done within a couple weeks. Some of the K-cars have been out and back from heavy rebuild in less time!

My admittedly uninformed conclusion: vendor is backed up, behind schedule. :(

Backed up at Delaware, though, isn't taking up space in BET.
