So, with ACSES being activated tomorrow for Civil Speeds, is it safe to say that today's the last day for the M2s?

no they will operate just like all other MN trains that not have ACSES yet.
more than 80% of fleet still has no functioning ACSES.
its only made functional for those trains already equipped.
If Conductors are in charge, why are they promoted to be Engineer???
