B721 did not operate to Everett Thursday. Y101 from Beacon Park went to Everett this morning
and picked up the 1125 on the way back to Beacon Park...

A HEP swap should be fairly quick, especially in a facility such as Altoona.

The other units that went out there spent a good 3-5 months out there at a time for HEP change-outs.

Let us remember the distinct growl of the original Cummins HEP sets in the Geeps, a sound that many commuter rail fans distinguished them by for 15 years.
