Since the last topic with the work engines was locked, let's keep this one on topic this time :wink: . GP35R's 104, 105, and 106 were all sitting in Stamford yard today. The 105 is the Stamford switcher/protect engine, while the 104 and 106 are deadheading out for Harmon this evening sometime.

This is just a photo. Dunno what the status of anything is. So I'm not sure why my photo is in this thread.

Thanks for posting the photo, Mr. Station. It is appreciated.

Yeah I kinda like the old GP35s too. Some of them are actually old Reading engines. (I'm sure the Reading crews never visualized these engines working inside GCT.)

Is that location near Marble Hill?

[Edit-RCT&HS lists MNCW 101 as former RDG 3641 (Conrail same number) and MNCW 105 as former RDG 3637 (Conrail same number).]

saw the AMMO protect crew with GP35R 104 and a flat car heading for Stamford this morning.

GP9 #750 replaced the 129 as the Stamford switcher/protect engine. 129 left for Harmon...due for an inspection.

GP9 750 left Stamford for Croton-Harmon over the weekend, and GP8 543, and GP35R 105 briefly stopped at Stamford from New Haven but they both deadheaded together towards the city yesterday.
