Any reason why 4801 didn't make the trip?

Also, what is the status of the 800-series P40's that CTDOT acquired from Amtrak?

[...] 5 of the P-40's are at Beech Grove for rebuild.

Any sign of the ex-NJT P40s making a return to service yet?

Also, can anyone confirm which, if any, of the other P40s aren't currently on the property?

The answer is no news is good news.

Mod Note: Cleaned up the snarkyness.

I was contacted by someone who recently visited Beech Grove. He stated the former NJT 4803 was stenciled "CDOT 6711" and he also saw the 834 with "CDOT 6701" stenciled on it. Should this go in order, the NJT's will be 6708-6711 and the former Amtrak's will be 6700-6707.

Similar to the GPs that were recently overhauled. New CTrail black/red/white design.
