P32AC-DM Rebuild Questions

Postby NortheastTrainMan » Thu Aug 07, 2008 1:11 pm

I know the P32AC-DMs are being rebuilt and well they're starting to act like PL42ACs according to what I heard on the forums. Also have any CDOT P32s been rebuilt yet?
I like trains and operations mainly on the east coast but also all over the U.S. and the world!

I only know what is open to the public nothing more.

The units unless other mechanical breakdown forces the rebuilt, will go to Erie in sequence as delivered.
So the CDOT units are dead last in about 2 to 3 year
If Conductors are in charge, why are they promoted to be Engineer???

Will they get another paint scheme? Like the all black orange stripes and white lettering? Or is that choice up to CDOT since they own their P32AC-DMs.

Who knows ?? its upto CDOT and lots of things can happen in 2 years.
I personal believe CDOT willl stick with the Mc Ginnis scheme.

What number are we up to now? Last P32Ac-DM to get sent out was 209. I also have seen 202 now has its new paint job which did not receive at the time of being re-built. Her G-string paint job no longer. :wink: :-D

Just out of idle curiosity, there's a photo in the August Railpace (pg. 4) of 216 passing Yankee Stadium sporting a new paint job and, according to the caption anyway, having been rebuilt.

So what are you curious about? You just made a statement :wink: . Yes the 216 has been rebuilt. All of the P32AC-DM's in the new scheme have been rebuilt and are being repainted in the new scheme before being shipped back.

This morning on the Park Avenue viaduct my train ran alongside 206. That unit's still in the old paint scheme.

I'd like to get a running tally. What are they up to about, about 10-12?

Thanks FL9AC. That's very interesting. I get all the way to the ring finger on my left hand so that means they rebuilt nine so far, correct? :(

Hopefully we could maybe add to it as each unit returns and keep a running tally.
