METX198 was sighted at Western Avenue along with the METX120, both going into the house there. Given that 407 is on BNSF, it is a reasonable assumption that 198 and 407 made a bit of a swop. Get it while you can!

Just what BN needs another MP36. I want the E9's.

heck, i'd be happy just having all Winnebago as long as i would never have to see a mp36 come down the bn again

Unfortunately, we're stuck with the lion's share of the MPs so BN doesn't have it so bad.

And you had E units for almost 40 years. What's your point?

Jesus, I don't even think 198 made a run on the MILW. Darn thing sat at Western Ave or something like that, probably. That is, if the thing was ever over here.
