I saw No. 2011 on the New Canaan shuttle today at Stamford. Sounded like she was running well. :-)

On the NEW CANNAN shuttle? Are you sure you don't mean the Danbury shuttle? You may have seen it laying over in Stamford yard.

Danbury, is of course correct, Otto. Don't know what I was thinking. :-)

Metro North will be considering two excursions next year: 50th Anniversary of the FL9, and 60th of the F10's (F3's). Both trips will include the Beacon Line and a visit to Danbury.

Hmmm...that's news to the people who run the trips...the 2005 trip hasn't even been nailed down yet, much less thoughts of 2006. That said, both ideas have been floated. But there won't be two trips in one year over the Beacon Line.

It would be nice to have a trip powered by cab units. They should start as close as they can to GCT, it could even be a crew point like Croton. I have never ridden the Beacon, but I have ridden the entire system in general.

MNCR can not run cab units into or out of tunnel or Terminal in revenue service, that includes excursions.
Non of these units has third rail capabilities and MNCR promised the powers to be, no more cab units in GCT other than equipment moves.
