Thank you! I wondered why this was nowhere near third rail:

There's no 3rd rail shoe visible,not sure if the coupler "cheater" was installed on that M-3's coupler to allow towing with a BL-20 or MP-15.

Amtrak locomotive spotted this morning in Dover Plains (Upper Harlem) pushing mini-bomb south. It appeared that the locomotive #'s had been recently stenciled over. I believe it was stenciled as 216. I was so surprised to see the Amtrak unit I lost my focus.

Q: Where are the BL 20's that are typically assigned to the shuttles?

It's somewhat amusing to me that history's repeating itself. Remember when they P40's were brought in to run these services during the transition from the F-Units to the Brookvilles?

4 or 5 out of 12 BL20gh are at a overhaul company in Boise Idaho, one of things being done is replace the Rolls Royce/MTU 12/4000 diesel with a new Cummins. two units should have been back, but they have trouble with controls .
If Conductors are in charge, why are they promoted to be Engineer???

This Saturday morning I had a Brookville pushing my train out of Wassaic, and on the way back on Sunday afternoon I caught one of the Amtrak units on point. The train certainly felt like it had a little more acceleration with the Amtrak unit, haha.
