Welp, this leaves only 4 more remaining to be rebuilt which are 1030, 1036, 1071, and 1072. No more iconic F40 with steel bells 😢

1062 was sitting at readville yard as of last Friday. Unsure if it has been cab signaling testing this week. Haven’t seen 1052 there yet. Assuming it’s in Rochester getting acceptance testing done.

1062 ran through Cab Signaling/PTC testing and failed. Having work done at readville prior to being tested again.
