Not much left of the 7205 when I went by today. Long hood and engine components all cut off. Cab, frame and trucks looked to be all that was left.

Wow, only 2 serviceable units on the M&E? Seems like they are kind of "living on the edge" there. I guess the frequency of service is very low on their lines. One unit operating, and one in reserve if needed?
Thanks for the update.

I passed through Rockland on 6/24/14. The 489 was at the station on a train, apparently a charter for later in the week. It appears to be back in service.
