Whatever is wrong with 2081, it's shut down outside of the shop.
I see 9321 was moved up to fremont on a stub track sometime in the last year. I imagine it'll ship out too sooner or later (probably later).
That 'new' one won't have cab signals. It looks like it's been in the midwest all of it's life. I believe LIRR's ASC isn't used by any other railroad, so no leasers that show up will lead. Maybe if MNRR uses the same ASC they could lease one from P&W or CSX - but they only have so many set up to run down here as well. Doesn't matter though - NYA can bracket whatever comes. They need extra power with the longer trains, not necessarily power that can lead.
