Also where is 1057? Is that still at g t u(grafton and upton railroad)?

So it looks like 1064 and 1065 will be entering service soon
  by Commuterrail1050
Technically 1065 has already been accepted to service. Just needed repairs done that’s all. I have no idea why it says 1025 and 1051 are still in testing.
  by TrainFan1035
Well i knew 1065 was already accepted in service .
I meant coming back into service from the repairs
  by Commuterrail1050
I’m sure by now they have been placed on a southside set since that’s where they are assigned to since they were at readville.

I really wish they Had some 3C's up north because i dont see much up north
  by Commuterrail1050
Heads up y’all, 1065 is back in service and spotted on the 1704 set solo.

The 1026 is set out for pickup by CSX.
The 1069 should be next.
  by Commuterrail1050
Good news is that 1064 is somewhere down south in service. 1025 and 1051 will be next once testing wraps up for them. Looking forward to seeing more come back and get sent out.

As I type this 1064 is at Readville, not on a set. It is to be used only as a double header, which I interpret to mean it must be tested before being accepted into regular service.
  by Commuterrail1050
Then why did they type it on the roster as being accepted to service?

1054 No good this morning out of Pawtucket, brake rigging issue
  by Commuterrail1050
What’s a brake rigging issue? Never heard of that before.
  by MBTA F40PH-2C 1050
1064 added to 2029/1717 set 1/10/22

The 1054 has been having an issue with its locomotive hand brake. Would not be surprised if another issue developed. These rebuilds are coming back worse than when they left. embarrassing program
