Are they going to get Keolis or MBTA logo stickers?


The MARC ones got circle-T'ed even though they were MBCR not MBTA rentals (that's why they're still rotting at Seaview...MBCR still hasn't paid the waybill to send them back to MPI, and they aren't the T's problem). So, yes...in all likelihood T logo in AMT paint scheme.

Nobody even knows whether or not they will actually be used in the first place.

Right now it feels like screamers are like the T-1000, no matter what happens, you just can't get rid of them.

Though I'm surprised that given their abundance, (relatively) small size and durability, someone hasn't come along and offered a 12-710 ECO rebuild/re-power job on them.

With all of the smaller cash-strapped agencies out there, not to mention with Amtrak on their regional services, you would think there would be a solid market for an inexpensive 3000hp passenger loco with commonality with much of the established F40PH, F59, and MP36 parts streams. Sort of a cost/operations halfway point between the MP32 or the F40ph-2Cat and 100% all-new designs like the HSP46, the Vossloh/PL42AC, the BL36PH, the Charger, or the F125.

Could someone please change the threat so that its right? These engines are owned by RailWorld which was the parent company of the Montreal maine and Atlantic, not the track work company RailWorks...
