I heard the 1131 is also on its way back, but it is still in the Pennsylvania area.

1122 has been out since mid-November so I guess it takes them an average of about two/three months.

That turnaround time is also probably dependent on whether CSX gets it right with the routing out of Selkirk...

Quick side note, 19G is the westbound Oak Island-Conway train that the units take out to Altoona. When returning, they head east on 16N to Allentown, and then are put on 18G for the final leg of the trip to Oak Island for interchange to CSX.

Something doesn't seem right there. The 1131 made it to Selkirk on Q434 today.

I found out why. It's because NS has 1131 waybilled as MBTA 1131 instead of MBTX 1131.

CSX is reporting:

MBTA 1131 departed Harrisburg, PA on NS Jan 27th, 2:02PM

Still outdated info though. I'm surprised the computer didn't update the location for Selkirk since the AEI tag would have been scanned there. (assuming that it has one)

Slighty off topic but saw a notice that the cab doors are all being replaced on the geeps.
