293 was cut for a water pump swap. The 330 is indeed running around with 1647, and the 418 as we already know is with 1645.

Is the 293 back yet? A friend told me that he saw it running with 1629 but 2007 is with the 1629

274 is still on the Cape Cod Central. It should only be on it for a couple more weeks. I think the main point of 274 going to the Cape was so one of their E9s could be taken out of service to be repaired. The E9 was only used for HEP before, and should hopefully be leading trains soon.

If you want to see 274 on the Cape, get there soon!

Hearing the 274 was loaned out while other MC/CC power was used for the
Mass Coastal New Bedford/Fall River ballast trains. These ballast trains are
being run for Mass DOT.

That's true as well. Since 274 supplies both HEP and power, it takes the job of 2 MC locomotives. With 274 in service, IPH 2400 can be repaired and MC 2010 can go on ballast trains.

SLC 330 was on a Boston-based set this weekend. Made a short turn out of Bradford on 2209/2210.

After 274 is done on Cape Cod Central, will it go back to commuter service?

The 302 is now down in Hyannis to replace the 274. Was brought down on the rear
of the Mass Coastal Energy Train.

Just to clarify and in case any pairings have changed, could someone please tell me what cabcars any of the Railworld leasers are with? I saw 330 with 1647 a few weeks ago but I believe 418 and 293 have changed sets. Thanks

I was on the rocket Aline today and rode on 1629-330 today. It was really screaming and putting up quite a smoke show!

The 330 is the slowest of the bunch.
