Not much left of the 7205 when I went by today. Long hood and engine components all cut off. Cab, frame and trucks looked to be all that was left.

Wow, only 2 serviceable units on the M&E? Seems like they are kind of "living on the edge" there. I guess the frequency of service is very low on their lines. One unit operating, and one in reserve if needed?
Thanks for the update.

Looks right to me.

18 and 19 are both used almost daily. We've had several days recently that required two crews.

I passed through Rockland on 6/24/14. The 489 was at the station on a train, apparently a charter for later in the week. It appears to be back in service.
