Not too sure if it's true but I think I saw 1068 leading a doubleheader set down south, but I don't remember the control coach it was on. I'll let you know if I see it today at south station. It might be on the 1506 set with 1071 but not sure. They usually start on the readville shuttle before going on other lines.

Do you mean the 1075, or was the 1068 moved to a different set? Did get a report that 1075 was put back into service today.

Where/When is it testing tomorrow? Are they still testing on the NEC or do they test on the Fairmount line?

Testing on the NEC today according to previous posts. I believe it comes on from the readville csx track and goes all the way down to providence then turns back. Not too sure though so someone please fill in the gaps for me.

1031 is in Selkirk right now. It will be in Q436 tonight. 1035 should be the next F40 out of MPI. I said that last time but this time it's actually true lol

1075 was at SHSY without a set yesterday. I think it's ready to begin testing in revenue service on a doubleheader.

1075 officially returned to service on Friday. 1064 and 1066 looks like they were sent out as well.

As far as I know, the 1064 & 1066 are still in Middleboro or down at Rochester since September 17th.
