•Next routes 2023
•Coast Starlight (SEA-LA), 1,377 miles
•California Zephyr (CHI-OAK) 2,438 miles
•Additional routes in 2023 will see ALC42 locomotives, dependent upon successful Cab Signal testing for operation in the East.
The Coast Starlight actually already kicked off this week (video not mine):

Is Moffat down grade westbound? If so regeneration for HEP will certainly reduce tunnel ALC's exhaust.

Does anyone know what two alc42were parked today in the race street yard in Philly? Saw them from a distance but couldn’t get their numbers.

My guess is that when the ALC-42's come for the Pennsy, the Airo sets would be ready instead. Although... it may be the second round trip and we'll get both on the line for a time.

I'm not sure about the timing. I'm betting more the ALC's will be here first to replace the P42s, but I won't be surprised if they overlap with the Airo sets.

Emmett, this is the second thread (or maybe the second time this thread) where you've made multiple posts asking about specific details of the ALC and Airo deliveries to the Pennslyvanian. If anyone had any knowledge on this, you'd have seen it already, and asking every month won't change that.
