GP7u #23 with SW1500 #20 leading just came out on the main @BAKER and headed eastbound with 5 of the Comet I's plus a stainless steel baggage car(?). The still tiger-striped cab car was trailing. The latter's horn sounded coming out of the M&E siding and appeared all tail lights were lit.

Anyone know what this is about....excursion ?

What’s up with the two GP9s sitting at their headquarters? One is Maine Central 764 which was part of their outfit in Maine that closed down. The other is a grayish blue painted engine with no numbers or any sort of ID as to who owns it.

Anyone know what they plan on doing with these two?

The blue grey Geep is a former BAR unit that came with the other BAR units including the 23. It's been in various places on the M&E since it arrived. The Maine Eastern 764 is a former Amtrak unit. However, the real big news is the two freshly painted GP-15-1s that just arrived on the property.

Yeah I heard about the GP15s. I assume they are there to replace the leased NJT GP40s?

Personally I’d like to see the GP9s running, being a fan of old diesel power.

I hear ya about the older power, but for me it's got to chug! Love the sound of a 251. In my world I still see the Alco's running.

Oh wow that’s a nice model you have there! Shame I never got to see the 18 and 19 in service.

25 made its debut in passenger service on Whippany's Easter Bunny Express. The M&E logo was added the
following week.

Seen here on the School Street bridge east of Whippany Station.

I like the paint scheme on them!

So are these owned by them outright or are they leasing units? Also are they gonna have PTC put in so they won't have to borrow NJT GP40s?

Has there been any news on the M&E 100? I saw previous posts that it had been moved. Its actually a GP7 and the Maine Eastern unit is actually a GP10, but the interesting part about the 100 is that its the only known surviving Bangor and Aroostook GP7 left.

Has anyone seen anything on a Washington Terminal Company RS1 #59
I was the last machinist to rebuild it and would love to know it's status.

I could be wrong but I think it's still on the property somewhere. I doubt it runs though.
