Hey, I was looking around the forums and didn't see anything on the SW1's (which I assume is under ownership of RRPX). My question is what is the future for the two units? One looks operable, and the other looks like a parts unit. The most recent pictures I found showed both units sitting on a siding in Cedar Knolls where ME does most of their scrapping.

The SW-1's have been moved around a few times and I'm not sure where they are at the moment. Shortly after they first arrived it was reported that one unit will be restored to operation and the other is a parts donor. When/if that will actually happen is anyones guess.
