I've seen this picture before and it's been bugging me for some time:

Comet V's with SW1500

Can anyone explain why they were with an M&E switcher?

If im not mistaken, Alstom was doing warantee work for NJT on the C5's and they leased space at the MandE facility there in Mo-town.

Alstom, doing warrantY work? Noooooo! :-D

Now they just got that trailer by the MMC last i saw.

Would be cool to see those in MnE service though.

The Comet Vs were in Morristown for warranty repair. Alstom was leasing space in Morristown, as well as Port Morris, Raritan, and the MMC. As the warranties on all the Comet Vs have expired, they are no longer doing any work other than in the MMC.
