Nice looks like the current fleet. But I thought it was funny a friend of mine retired from yardmaster because he said,'You cant stand to see the coupler whe coupleing up." I see where he has to sit down to operate and unlike the Cineston he can stand up and operate the train I see his point. BTW It was Jim O'Roqure LOL. Thanks for the pics. PS Please save 0622/23 for Seashore
Farewell old friend thanks for the memories.

Your Welcome !!!

The #5 car cab is set up very simiular to the the #3 car on the red line.

I've heard that concern about not seeing the coupler when making up to another car. I'm not sure of the answer I've never heard the concern on the red line but i'm not really a transpotation person.

Thanks for the pics. Controlers look simular to 1800's and Type 8. And who is Jimmy fooling his just wanted an excuse to leave. The interior must no be complete except for the cab for all the monitoring equipment being used, And the carsi on the pic are they 0700-01. Thanks again

The Picture of Jimmy was taken during his retirement luncheon.



The rest of the pictures were given to me from a friend of mine.

I just noticed that on NETransit 0626/0627 are listed as out of service and waiting for parts. Anyone know the specifics behind this and how recent this is? This is the first I've noticed it.

There are rebuilding the Cineston or Master contorler in houes at the Orient Heights Shops. Usualy they send component work to Everett Shops.

I think the transmission gear joystick will be made by Newtran, while the cab also looks like the R142 and R143.

The railfan view will be the same as the 01800s and 0600s, no ATO will occupy the railfan window like the 01400s thru 01700s and the 01200s.
