Re: NYGL Dundee Spur Status - 2009-present

Anyone know if the equipment in Port Jervis is still there?

As well at the tiger striped Comet 1 cabs. They also had the AC designation.

Re: NJT to lease AEM-7s and ALP-44s from SEPTA

I am ashamed that we cannot get our act together to even pretend to use there engines as cab cars. Why we are getting a pass from the FRA about this is beyond me. Does any of the old timers know the history of why our HEP ended up not matching Amtrak's? This makes borrowing equipment a difficult pr...

NJ Transit really making a mockery of the PTC mandate.

Re: Has IP gone "Belly up"?

It’s too bad what has happened to this company as I do admire their appreciation for golden age railroading. They had a real nice personalized touch on The Hoosier State and it seemed to gain appreciation from the riders. Too bad it just never worked out.

Re: NYGL Dundee Spur Status - 2009-present

That E8 and RS-3 are certainly worth saving. The E8 was operational not too long ago, but needs work since it could not run on its own when brought to Spencer, NC. That Alco in Passaic though is just a cab. LIRR converted it to a power pack.

If this company is bankrupt, what happens to the equipment in Port Jervis?

Re: Northern Branch HBLR (was DMU proposal)

Surprised the Northern Branch never became a full commuter line running in the line’s entirety. The Northern Valley lacks any commuter rail line, and this line runs through the heart of multiple towns that house many commuters into NYC.

Re: Some Questions About WOH Equipment from the 90's

Did NJ Transit have any say on how they wanted the EOH Shoreliners? They changed the numbers of only the cab cars and also changed the names on the majority of the cars that came over. Seems like an unnecessary change.

Re: Some Questions About WOH Equipment from the 90's

Thank you, I appreciate the answer. I'm assuming that's why the Shoreliners came over, because of a fleet shortage?

Re: Some Questions About WOH Equipment from the 90's

I don't remember reading that. You stated, that these two cars ( and this thread is not solely about 5179/5180) are still on MN property, are awaiting conversion to inspection cars, and that the thought of them entering revenue service on the EOH was never considering due to the amount of money it w...

Re: Some Questions About WOH Equipment from the 90's

If you read carefully, these are not the same questions regarding 5009/5010. I asked about the current status of those two particular cars and what their current plans on for them. I didn't ask that here.

Some Questions About WOH Equipment from the 90's

Hey everyone, I've read in the past on here and have seen some photos of the Comet IA/II/IIA/III and Shorelines that operated on Metro-North's West-of-Hudson service and had some questions. I was hoping to have this as a centralized topic of this equipment as there are some scattered threads on here...

Re: Whatever Happened to Comet III's 5009 and 5010?

Interesting, in the last photo it appears that they have at least started some of the transformation project on one of these cars. Is there any reason why this project has been delayed for 8 years now?

Re: Whatever Happened to Comet III's 5009 and 5010?

Did they ever consider using these in passenger use like they did with the WOH Comet II's they brought over to EOH?
