Given how much has been invested in that equipment it would not surprise me if he did.

According to Pan Am Railfans FaceBook page postings, the OCS was being prepped on Saturday 11/14/20 at its home base at Waterville for another trip - it was further suggested that this trip would be a Board of Directors walkabout? Itinerary / schedule is unknown (to me).

There are a few photos of the OCS being towed south on 11/18 by MEC 3404 with F units facing north on the Pan Am Railfans Facebook page and Flickr (photo by John Kittredge). Dead head move apparently? And I'm guessing nb OCS trip will be today Thursday 11/19/20?

OCS apparently departed Springfield northbound up the Conn River before sunrise on Thursday 11/19/20. - wonder if BoD / other tourists were on board?

Will we see a Last Hurrah Special with the Pan Am's OCS train? Any idea as to what CSX might do with it, once they own it?

The rumor going around is that either the train will be sold off by Pan Am before the sale, or will be shipped to Mellon's ranch in Wyoming.
