On the ride home tonight, it looked like Wayne Electric had an AEM-7 coupled to one of the gel trains on the west side of the shop building.

Maybe they will hang around a little longer in work train service?

Last I heard, both 2306 and 2307 were being used in gel train service.

I did see a Newark-Philly express with an AEM7 about 2 weeks ago. I think it was the 2303 pushing.
His train? It's MY train! I know what I'm doing, do you?

2303 has been in the dead line since the late Summer. The last one to run on the AM Newark was the 2306 in the timeframe you mention. It went up, then got cut at Wayne Electric to go into Gel service. Replaced by 907.

I'm guessing that this is to backfill for locos in for PTC installation?

That would make sense since the NJT PTC crisis seems to be over. Did any one of them turn a mile in NJT service, revenue or otherwise?
