In the FL9 thread, it was mention that 216 was damage by a tree , and now is in Stamford for repairs. Was there any injuries to the crew, and how bad is the damage?

No injury to Engineer and heavy repair shop has the unit fixed as of today.
Now those were repairs to window frames and center colomn.
The unit will now go to North White Plains for painting.

Why would they bother repainting a loco that's about to be retired?

The 216 is a P32AC-DM - Genesis - and is not near retirement.
