Did CSX ever pick up 1128? I haven't seen any waybill data for this unit. :(

CSX went by the 1128 again today. Next chance is Sunday since
BP-10 doesn't run Friday and Saturday...

Well that is definitely interesting. I have still not seen any waybill data for this unit. It has been so long since the last pair of units were shipped, I wonder if somebody has forgotten one of the steps involved in getting these properly registered in the system?

I'm only guessing, but I think the reason 1128 hasn't been picked up yet is because the 1131 is supposed to go with it, and she is having air trouble and is still outside the Diesel House coupled to the 1014 to provide air for testing. The 1131's problems have had to take a back seat to the almost daily breakdowns we've had recently.

please dont say that... some people(ME) actually like them... the screamers are draining MBCR cash wise no matter how reliable they are said to be

Any engine can break down for any number of reason at any time. You have allot of parts and of course a main engine and all other various components that could go bad. Of course the Screamers and GP40MC's have age to contend with so they are much more obvious to start having major issues compared to the rebuilds on the South side.

The 1131 has been set out with the 1128 for pick up.

Is this a error between the management folks talking to CSX, or a delay in paperwork?

CSX could be waiting for all the necessary paperwork to be matched up in Jacksonville and entered in their computer system.

I believe that TTI is responsible for expediting the move, so once the units are set out, it is up to them to make all the phone calls.

1128 and 1131 were picked up by the trash train today. Let's hope they come back on time, unlike the 1116 and 1119! lol I'm starting to get really worried!

2 unknown MBTA locos on a westbound CSX freight through Ashland MA around midday.


So that confirms that they are out of here....

1132

Postby mbta1051dan » Sat Apr 19, 2008 3:12 pm

Someone from a locked thread asked what specifically the 1132's problems were. I'm curious too. Is this the type of information that must stay at BET and not be disclosed?

I really don't think you are going to get specific info. Only a handful of people on here really know that and I am not sure they can really share that info.
