I've lost track of the fleet status of rebuilds, etc... Are there any straight F40's left unrebuilt? Does that mean the M's get replaced?I would think that older locomotives assigned to other lines would get retired. Then 8 existing locomotives assigned to BNSF/SWS would get re-assigned elsewhere. Making room for the new locos.
