I don't see what's worthy of remembrance from that crash. No one was killed so there's nothing to memorialize. I think everyone involved would much prefer to forget an entirely preventable collision caused by a trainee engineer and a substandard training program.

I would have rather they reset the numbering on the -3Cs and put them in order without gaps. Unfortunately the first contract was only for 10 rebuilds so they couldn't commit to that up front.

1025 was on the Erie test train yesterday.


I find it interesting that 1025 is testing already because if we look at it in chronological order 1064 and 1051 should be ahead of it.

Had a report the 1064 was out testing two weeks ago, yet no movement out of Erie.

We already have enough in testing already. Let’s get those in service before sending more.

Looks like the 1060 is running around South now, seen on the 1821 set, not sure if it's got another loco behind it or if it's going solo.

It’s running solo on the set.

Nothing in Erie for CSX.
  by GP40MC1118
 
1029 & 1067 headed to Erie soon. Being brought to Middleboro for CSX tomorrow on an extra.
1063 is being picked up at Middleboro for Readville tomorrow too.
A friend out to Erie says no update other than the 010/011 are still on the interchange track at Erie and not brought into the plant yet.

Any updates on the progress of 1065 and 1066 in testing?

Looks like 1065 is now somewhere South, not sure what set it's currently on.

Sonic FYI 1060’s horn remained the same.

1065 has been spotted on the 1815 set leading solo at south Hampton st yard facility.
