Rumor is if Hillary wins, Molloy will become her transportation guy.
that would seriously put a dent in the Bar car plans.
btw they still have not ordered those 60 extra M-8's :-)
If Conductors are in charge, why are they promoted to be Engineer???

I'm sure it's been said earlier, but why not just go ahead and order M10's? By the time Kawasaki is ready, I'd bet MNRR would have M10 specs anyway.
Next stop, Willoughby
