I think LIRR is looking to piggyback off the NYA order for their work engine fleet. It was brought there for familiarization puropses. Like all gensets supposedly the pulling power is much left to be desired. Same with the current rebuilds at MNRR of the GP35 fleet by Brookville. Nothing beats the old stuff!
