Any new M&E expansion/rehab projects going on or going to be planned? Like with them rehabing RVRR, is there anything else in the cards? such as rehabbing old lines and expanding current ones or even starting service like they did in Maine with the passenger one?

Thanks

NJT -

I think for the moment the M&E has a full plate with the ongoing SIRT/RVRR project, the Maine Central operation, it's Bayway contract as well as servicing it's 3 core branch lines.

Tom & all,

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I heard all work has stopped on the RV line since a good 2 weeks or so ago....Don't know when or if work will commence again....
