Metrolink's leased ex GO F59PHs

Post by Tom6921 » Thu Apr 02, 2015 10:45 pm

Looking at photos of when Big Boy #4014 was moved out of the museum onto the main line, I saw the last Metrolink train to pass on the line was pulled by an ex GO Transit F59PH. How many F59PHs did Metrolink lease/buy that are in the GO Transit livery?

Per this wiki link, Metrolink has leased 3 ex-GO logos.

I'll admit I don't know how accurate that link is.

According to this, the three GO F59PHs will be on property until the end of this year.
