It wouldn't be the first frame-up wreck repair.That's what I thought as well, but the county sheriff's office said it had to be hauled out in pieces, which implies it was scrapped onsite. There's been no other reporting on it since the wreck.

When it comes to the engines in the 180 series, only 185 and 187 remains to be rebuilt.186 was the lead engine on a BNSF double header yesterday afternoon. It was pulling F40PH-3 113 along with 10 cars on train 1277, a Naperville/Route 59 express.
