I was a bit surprised by that myself being that they’re owned outright by the LIRR.
I think at this point the LIRR should really look into just rebuilding the MP15AC fleet. A shame that EMD and General Electric are just former shells of themselves. Any product put out today won’t compare to the old LIRR fleet of GP38-2’s and MP15ac’s. NYA 300 and 301 should be a prime example of that.
