Well from what I am hearing 9022 first trip ran into trouble. Saw a pic of it smoking at what looks to be the church street crossing in Brownville junction and the fire department on the sence.

GP38M-3 #3817 is in Silver Springs, NY on the interchange track between Rochester & Southern and Norfolk Southern... I'd assume it's on its way to Maine...
Train videos from all around Rochester and Western NY, seen here:

Been sitting there for almost two weeks now... NS doesn't seem to be in any hurry to come get it.

Saw photos for 3817 running on job 710 yesterday. Good to see it up and running. Was wondering if any one may know any information about what LTEX unit it was rebuild from. I am guessing one of the GP35 that they got from BNSF but have not had any luck finding any info to look into its history. The only thing I have is that it could be ether LTEX 2503, 2506, 2541, 2580 because LTEX sent them to CAD then AMP to be rebuild for CMQ, but it could be another unit because 3816 was not one of those four units.
