I'm very interested in seeing more. How can I find out when 18G/19G will be running? Would like to get more photos of these engines.

Sorry about the lack of response; I somehow missed your post.

Both trains operate daily. 18G is a morning train, usually through Bound Brook arund the 9:00 hour (give or take). Not too sure on when 19G usually heads west.

Do you know where specifically, and where and when it'll be moving out? I live in the Lehigh Valley now, it'd be cool to see the T here!

Assuming no unforseen reason to delay its movement, it should go out on 18G early tomorrow morning.

In regard to the where, it would go east across LEHL and CSAO LEHL to Oak Island for interchange to CSX.

Thanks for the heads up on 1136. I went to rail fan my usual spot the next morning but didn't see it. When the next one comes, hopefully you could let us know again. I'd like to get more shots of these units.

1136 has to be at least up to Selkirk by now. The next unit to come back home should be 1134, my favorite GP40MC.

Must be heading to that new MBTA facility in Portland, right? Oh, there isn't one? Hmm. D'oh.

Here they are going through Ridgefield Park, NJ today on Q417 (photo John Durant):

That would be the last few miles before reaching Oak Island for handoff to NS.
