MPI Warranty Repairs: 1074 is on GU-1 today to be brought to Milford after getting warranty repairs from MPI in the Grafton & Upton shop.

There is a Keolis extra that will run down to Milford today to pick up the repaired 1074 and bring it back to Readville.

What engine facilities does the G&U have?
  by GP40MC1118
They got a new engine house just south of the yard at North Grafton. Not sure if it went up in 2020 or 2021.

What was the issues that 1074 had in the first place to get repaired there? Also, what common issues does some of these rebuilds comes back with?

1026 has finally made it to Middleboro... Begin the testing process!

I’d like to know when they usually start the cab signaling testing. Not familiar with how the testing process works here, but I know that they start on the cape main. Not sure if that changed because of all the cab cars rebuilt. I know they used to test both here at the same time.
  by GP40MC1118
Cab Signal testing usually happens a few days after each unit is delivered to Readville off an extra from Middleboro. And that doesn't happen until the MBTA "accepts" the unit in Rochester. In other words. CSX delivers it to Middleboro. Mass Coastal takes it to Rochester. Once accepted, Mass Coastal brings it back to Middleboro. The MBTA, usually once a week or two, runs an extra from Readville to Middelboro and return. This is how it gets to Boston.

Does anyone know what’s going on with 1025? It’s been listed as in testing for quite a while now and there hasn’t been any confirmed sightings anywhere.

Any reports of what's going on with 1057? Still on the G&U?
