That’s because 1631 received derailment repairs to the trucks and other such components in bet unlike Delaware for the others.

Is 1139 still spotted on the 1631 set?

Is 1118 and 1132 getting the overhaul or will they be scrapped? I saw a video recently of them sitting in the dead line in Rochester (the poster said he had permission to be there but who knows) with the F40s before they sold at auction and those two Geeps looked really rough.

According to NE Transit: In or awaiting major engine repairs at Rochester MA (5 locomotives): 1118, 1125, 1132, 1137-in shop, 1138
No other updates.

Those gp40’s are eventually going to be overhauled like 1136 was. That one was the first to be rebuilt there.

The newest member in the shop to be rebuilt is 1122. I wonder how 1116 is doing in there.

Have heard that the 1137 down at Area 52 has been repainted in MassDOT blue paint like the 1136, BUT have yet to see it or a picture to confirm though

This is right it is just like 1136. Have half heard it has LEDs and an E bell

The only difference with 1136 is that it does not have led lights and an ebell, especially painted blue like 1137 has. It would surprize me if it started service down south as they are all up north the gp40’s.

No Old Glory? Will it be added later?

So 1137 is "jointly owned" by MassDOT & MBTA?
  by Commuterrail1050
 
It means massdot owns them, but they can be used in Mbta service.

The blue dip doesn't look that bad, but for cryin' out loud, just put the number on the cab wall like a normal paint scheme.

(And yes, that's the least substantial, most pointless thing we can complain about today! :-D )

White railings don't stand out as well as the yellow. And that livery makes your locomotive look fat :wink:
