Just saw GMTX 9000 here in Chattanooga, TN yesterday on NS. It still wears the special P&W/VRS scheme and is quite clean.

It looks like the train is sticking to the Monday, Wednesday, Friday pattern of leaving Queens.

If anybody is watching the Walk tower Cam("So No" is a local term for South Norwalk) the Danbury local leaves first at Cedar Hill,CHFP follows
The local is topped and tailed to allow a quick move off the New Haven line at Walk tower.
