Believe it or not, there are even plans to bring the 4109 back to revenue service, amazingly!
4109 is the Geep that was recently repainted into the blue CNJ scheme, correct? I had assumed they would use this in revenue service, but I take it from your comment that there are still mechanic issues to work out before this happens?

Thanks.

Correct. Needs to have the HEP issue addressed (replaced or repaired?) and some other light mechanical work needs to be performed before it can pull passengers... From what I read it does have PTC installed though.

Did I read that right, ApproachMedium, that there's talk of reactivating the Comet IV cabs?

Things are being tested. It would be stupid NOT to. The things are there. I still to this point do not understand why they are not using them with the legacy locomotives that they know they work with. The place is always short cab cars. I could only hope to see with this push to reactivate all the mothballed or sidelined stuff could bring back some Comet 3s as PP trailer cars, or even at least for dedicated meadowlands trains.

That car that was blinded was done a while ago.

The Comet IVs are dead as cab cars. They will never lead a revenue train again. With even more MLs coming there will be more comets displaced making more CVs cabs available. The CIV doesn't stand a chance.
