I was in Warwick on Fri. Feb. 16th at 10:30 am when M&NJ (East Penn) #1800 came into town with 12 tank cars and 3 others. Possibly some of the tank cars might have been for Jones Chemical, but probably most were propane cars.

The M&NJ is getting a new GP38-2 in blue and yellow, #2175. It was in Buffalo on NS this morning.

I believe M&NJ 2175 is trailing the power of 11Z-06 headed for Enola yard this AM. Any idea what the route of travel of 2175 will be to M&NJ? I'm guessing it has to get to Campbell Hall, NY via Croxton yard? Or is it possible 2175 is destined for the East Penn RR, another Regional Rail LLC property?

Also note that 11Z-06 power set includes the Reading HU #1067.

Pretty sure it'll go Croxton to Campbell Hall, which is how all other ESPN power got routed to CH in the past.

I also believe I read a while back that there were suppose to be 2 GP38's heading to the MNJ, so you'll likely see a second one show up at some point. Get your shots of those GE's up there now if you haven't already!

Someone posted a pic of the 2174 on MNJ Hist. Society's facebook page out in Ohio getting shipped a couple days ago. Expect to see it in CH in the near future.

Are other units being removed from CH?
I think it may be possible that NJ Transit might not be the perfect, infallible organization that most people assume it is.

A gentleman on that FB page, who sounds like an MNJ employee and does mechanical work on the loco's, mentioned 1800 will be staying put, as well as the 773 which is "receiving upgrades" (didn't mention details about the upgrades). Also mentioned the new geeps are part of ESPN's plans to phase out the remaining GE's... which I pretty much figured.
