I believe only NJTransit bought this locomotive? I’m wondering why no other company bought PL42s. We’re they bad problem engines? Are they still in service?

still in service , but poorly thought out most other commuter agencies have no use for them , as they are to high and do not have dual mode capability.

Dutch, were they ever rebuilt? Can they be rebuilt or are there no parts because there is so few of these PL-42s.
