As of 1800 hours yesterday, PAR 1 & 2 with 3 ST passenger cars was parked facing west at Rigby Yard. It was still there at 0145 this morning. No idea where it's headed, or when it's scheduled to depart.

Apparently OCS traveled to Mechanicville on Thursday 5/17/18 and returned to E Deerfield by sundown. Anybody know the OCS mission?

That makes sense, put a 4,000 HP 6 axle on the OCS instead of hauling freight. These guys never cease to amaze me.

Well when your F units aren't reliable enough to pull a 3 car train you gotta find something...

Its probably more to showcase their new power and showing the future of the railroad to investors.
