I heard the NS AC rebuild made with CAF electronics has been testing on WNYP. Any photos? Supposedly testing in the company of NS Dash8.5 8501. Hornell-Olean, or with loads up and down Keating Summit?

A search of sites reveals no private posts of NS 8520. Something will emerge eventually in the main.

Until then, is there any word on the performance of the AC44C6CF and Dash 8.5?

Pics on NSDASH9 show 8520 testing with 8501 (and early 8.5) and 8513 (the most recent modified? 8.5) in a trio set around Olean.
