A rebuild by Progress Rail.

Why is 1125 sitting dead at BET?
  by TrainFan1035
Has Been Having Some Issues

UTEX is an in-house program at BET. Nothing to do with Progress Rail.

Yesterday I saw 1122 at North Station for the first time in what seemed like forever, how long has 1122 been back in service?
  by Commuterrail1050
Can’t remember the tentative date it came back but not long ago.
  by Commuterrail1050
Remember how 1117-29 were listed as awaiting repairs? Now they are getting rebuilt and painted in blue more than likely at rochester like 1125-36-7 are.

You mean just 1117 and 1129, or all the GP40MCs between them?
  by Commuterrail1050
Yes I meant them all individually that I typed. I was too lazy to type 1117 and 1129 at the time. Same thing with 1125, 1136, and 1137

Any updates on the revenue status of 1138? It came back around a month ago after being displayed at the Railfan Day down in the cape, and afaik, its been sitting at Readville ever since.

went back to Rochester, hasn't been in Readville for about 3 weeks. 1138 failed its ACSES test (ADU has wrong software installed) and there was paint on the contactors, so it couldn't engage the Reverse position

Quoted from a conductor, they screwed up the paint really badly. Apparently, nothing is working properly because the paint contractor painted over all of the electronics.

That's like when they paint your house windows then you can't open them! Painters don't understand electrons.
  by Commuterrail1050
Great…. That means all of the electronics will need to be replaced. Hope the paint contractor is paying for their mistakes.
