Was very hard to tell with the snow and speed but 214 is back, rebuilt, lost its OLI logo, and was the lead on a double header, leading 211.

Does anyone know where 215, 611 and 614 are? They were in their usual spot three weeks ago when I last passed by Western Ave. Last Wednesday there were some flat cars with what looked like bilevels covered with a tarp in that space.

Where are Ex Go Transit F59s currently running these days or are they out of service for the moment?
I love the smell of Diesel Fuel in the Morning!! ;)

They’d been on the MILW lines and presumably still are since it’s only 3 years or so since they joined the roster.

614, 611 and 215 are on the east side of Western Ave. coupled behind an F59PH.

Also saw 413 and 94 coupled on each end. 413 was coupled to 215 and 94 coupled to 614.

Looks like 422 was freshly repainted. The roof is now all black instead of that silver/grey color. I think it looks better.
