1056 was seen testing not long ago. Not sure on the status of the other units still there. Still haven’t seen whether 010 was nearing completion or not. Let us know when they release 1052 eastwards.

I understand it was the 1052 testing, not the 1056.

1027,1034,1055,1059 delivered to Middleboro today by an extra out of Readville. Hopefully CSX will take them this time.

1052 should be in Worcester or Framingham by now

1070 or 010 should be next out of Erie, but that's looking like sometime in July the earliest.

The two MP36s are not at Erie. They are stored off-site and will return at a later time.

As far as the F40 rebuild program is concerned - think of it this way: you have units from two different builders, from three build programs. The -3C program brings them all to the same standard in terms of wiring and components, which leads to maintenance savings down the line in terms of the ability to troubleshoot and has the same parts.
