No changes.
What happened with the joint LIRR / NYAR work locomotive procurement? I thought money for new locomotives for NYAR came from NYS DOT grant money and not the LIRR capital program?

300 just returned to revenue service a few days ago after being out for about a year. I think 301 is OOS until further notice. NYAR might have canceled their order for PR20Bs since both of these engines were out for a while due to mechanical issues.

The NIMBY community there got that order canceled many years ago.

155 returned from Altoona some months ago and is back in service. 151 is nowhere to be seen (possibly sent out for rebuild?).

I don't know if this worth mentioning in the roster as well, but 268 isn't in the exact paint scheme as 270 and 271. Unlike 270 and 271, it has no NYAR lettering on the long hood, the front of the cab is painted green, and it's frame is painted green with white dashed frame striping. http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/showPi ... id=5223300

151 is out for rebuild. 268 has worn that "heritage" scheme for almost its whole career at NYA.
