NS 9261 Hanging Out at Stiles St. Yard

NS 9261 has been hanging out at Stiles Street Yard near Linden these past few days. In the pictures she is actually obscuring a loan tanker car that was on the track next to her.

Still there as of August 19. Must need parts or something. Never seen a unit there for so long.

That is the Phillips 66 drill engine. It sometimes changes everytime a train comes in, other times will hang around for days, or weeks.

Thanks! I thought they usually hang out on the curve near the crew quarters. Was strange to see in the heart of the yard on straight track.
