Is there any more concise explanation to what any of this particularly means?

SEPTA has had a budget item for replacing 3 work locomotives. Cannot see the bid docs so cannot say for sure.

SEPTA received funding from the Feds to replace the diesels with more fuel efficient/lower emission models.

51, 52, 60, 61, and either 50 or 70, depending on who you talk to. The original plan was to buy five or six more like the 80, but I guess they'll be right back in square one of multiple builder hell.

70 is going to get replaced and SEPTA should've buy a tier 4 and put it inside 70 instead of getting a new one
