H/U Metro-North MNCW4907 on PAL

Postby Irishiron » Mon Mar 28, 2011 3:37 am

PAL departed Paducha tonight (PL3 is it?) with MNCW4907, now rebuilt as F40PH-3C, heading home. Should be interchanged to NS at Louisville. The unit is one in the West of Hudson service pool operated by NJTransit between Hoboken, NJ & Port Jervis, NY as well as Hoboken, NJ & Spring Valley, NY.
And let the chaos begin...

Cross-posting to NJT and MNRR. And yes, I know it's a YEAR OLD and probably covered elsewhere (probably being the operable word). It was from the SE railfan forum (I don't venture into there too much, even though I live in the SE).
Next stop, Willoughby
