Would love to see the Capitol on its nose again.

Any idea which is no longer used, and is it available for non-revenue work?

75 was parked at Riverside yard in Baltimore for a few years. It was moved to Brunswick yard this spring, but I have no idea whether it ever made it back in service, or why it was MIA for so long.

4145 is in Baltimore and getting a new skin. Just sighted at Penn Station. Photos soon.

It doesn't look like they changed much on this locomotive. A "MARC" decal, a MD flag. They left the NJ stripes on it.
