It is always nice to see the Zephyr on the line with the diner serving lunch like during it's "In Service" Days.

isn't MBTA 902 on the chopping block?

Raphael, In an attempt to keep the blog accurate if youre going to make comments please gather your information and make an educated post. That unit was the victim of a fire that heavily damaged it. It is, at this point, best suited as a parts donor. IRM doesnt just scrap pieces of equipment. We need parts, and this unit is a great donor for other pieces of equipment in the collection that will need hard to find parts in the future.

BN 9908 seemed to be hiding this weekend. Any news on what's up with it?

It's in the shop for body work and backdating.

That's a shame. I was hoping they would leave it as 9908 for a while longer. Love the BN colors.

Nick, from my understanding, since 9908 no longer has HEP, it is being backdated into its CBQ heritage and will also be used as a backup to 9911 for the Nebraska Zephyr trainset. Also, as my understanding, BN3 will eventually be restored to it's BN livery as it does have operating HEP. Jamie or Jeron could probably verify that but I hope that info helps. Nick

Raphael. Please clarify what you mean when you state that "MBTA is on the chopping block". Was this acquisition of IRM's only GP9 for parts?
#5 MRZ on 2015-07-22 18:27
yes, or so i've heard. used as parts for the other geeps in the collection.
