CDOT will use its own shoreliners for Springfield line and maybe still on SLE when CDOT/MN pool gets MLV's.
CDOT owns about 49 of them all in great shape as all end door cars were total strip down overhaul by Bombardier in upstate NY.
If Conductors are in charge, why are they promoted to be Engineer???

Wasn't the overhaul quite a while ago? I remember having a couple running on the end of a train that I brought to Selkirk once. I don't know whether Barre, VT plant was open still, so we got them via VTR, or the Plattsburgh plant. I still wonder why we didn't take them directly to Croton Harmon. Maybe they went over the B&A, and on to New Haven.
