Two GMTX slug sets
A GP40/GP40 body slug assigned to Waterville for the SAPPI job.
An MP15 (or SW1500) and switcher body slug assigned to Deerfield for the hump jobs.
GMTX 406 a GP15 assigned to Waterville (or more accurately SAPPI) and is used at the mill for the switcher up there.

There are other leasers still on the property, I think at this point they are mostly LTEX units. But besides the 5 above mentioned units, nothing on the property is under a current lease, its simply in a deadline waiting to depart for another leasee or storage line.

On Sunday 2/18/18, POED was conveying GMTX 958 (slug) & 3050 (mother) west at CPF-WL. Buzz is the evaluation of the mother/slug pair usage on the SAPPI train has concluded and the units are on their way to St Louis. Anyone have any further details? What will replace these units - someone said major fuel savings were realized using them for this operation.

I think I heard they had mechanical issues of some kind.
