SunRail "sort of" gets a new loco...

Postby GOLDEN-ARM » Fri Dec 29, 2017 9:51 pm

arriving sunday night at rands yard, the newest sunrail loco was set out at rands. loco 110 is the last of the MP32PH-Q ordered. it has been related that no more can be built, do to lack of donor cabs. the loco isn't being delivered, literally to the opposite side of the fence, that separates rands yard from sunrails vsmf yard.

the "inside joke is, that until the last 99 payments are made, (at $25K each), the loco stays on csxt property". :P this still leaves us with only 9 locos, due to the 108 being wrecked at a grade crossing accident, with a tractor trailer in longwood.

Donor cabs? Aren't the cabs the only new piece here? It appears that the rest is from a rebuilt geep.

Is 108 permanently out of service?

110 is the former MARC 66
