1647 is no longer with the 301. What cab car is with it now?

The 301 is now running as a pseudo control car due to control car availability issues. It
was put on the Boston end of a 5 car string (1 Bombardier, 4 MBB's) and GP40MC 1133.

I think one of the lease units is paired with 1638; it's on 457 at the moment.

Looks like the clunker set (1133-3 MBBs-644-301) was real popular on train 260 this morning:
