Not sure if it has been reported on here but PAR has acquired C40-8Ws as well to standard cabs.

7655 and 7898 were spotted at Rigby on 6/11.

From experience running these to the standard cabs the crews will enjoy these a lot more.

I believe they got these 3/4 weeks back. Can't seem to find evidence of the PAR Sightings FB page on my devices as of a short time after that. The first mention of them was with the GECX marks, coming over through RJ, if I recall.

They have six of them, all ex-CSX. Brings their total of Dash 8s up to 42 units.

I typically think paint is trivial for freight but it certainly won't hurt Pan Am's corporate image to be able to have the "look" of a Class I or a very large Class II.

Picked up a copy of the Fall 2018 issue of Classic Trains yesterday and inside is an article about EMD SW-1's. There
is mention of the former B&M fleet- 5th largest at 24 units- and ex-B&M 1113 rescued from Mt. Tom. There is no
mention of Panam 007- anyone know it's status?

The monthly PAR loco report on the Guilford Yahoo Group appears to have ended
with the June report. As I recall, the last report showed the 007 still in service
at Waterville. It is used to shuffle locomotives on the transfer table.

The 007 isn't exB&M but rather exSLR, exxBMS,exxxAmtrak. As far as Bills roster I contacted him recently about it, the August one should be up the weekend of Sept. 1st. The July one is out already.

Thanks for the reply, Guys. The last mention of 007 I could find was from 6 years ago.

The Guilford Yahoo Group is no more. HOWEVER, the Guilford IO Group is alive and well. It's the exact same group on a different platform. The group moved from Yahoogroups to IO Groups in early 2018. The PAR loco reports are still posted monthly in the files section of the Guilford IO Group. Check for them after the first of each month. Lastly, MEC 007 is alive and well as the Waterville shop switcher.

I hear they've got six or seven more Dash 8-40Bs on the way.
