In VIA's Toronto/Mimico Maintenance Center there are 4 or 5 RDCs parked on the south side of the yard. Are there any plans for their use?

During my trip on the Canadian last week I spoke w/ a chap that works @ the shops in Capreol who said the units on the Sudbury to White River run could do w/ some work.

Apparently they belong to FarmRail who bought them a few years back but has done nothing with them. The trackside guide shows the units at Mimico as RDC-1's 6110(the Budd Demo unit), 6111, 6138, and RDC-2 6214 belonging to FarmRail. FarmRail also owns 6118 and 6130, 6118 is at IRSI in Moncton and 6130 is being tested by VIA.
