Just got my photos of it in the yard (I live right next door) and let me tell you that thing is one big piece of sh*t. Hope you guys like it! I will be sure to let you guys know if it heads down tonight, but unless they cut the plows for third rail tonight, it's not going anywhere. Don't know why they didn't do it at Selkirk before it came down.

Could be wrong, but I believe I remember the 2081 winding up in Jersey as well in the days before it arrived.
