1031 back into service today, looks like it was assigned down south. The original 10 F40s that were sent out for rebuild are all now rebuilt and in service, Obviously the question now is if and when we will start getting anything beyond that back from Erie.

Seems like a much slower turnaround from Erie now. The car-bodies are being sent to Curry Rail in Holidaysburg, Pa. for refurbishing. According to a Facebook page, WABTEC has subcontracted this out, while the internal stuff is done at Erie.
The 1025's shell was shipped out of Erie yesterday.

One F40 is sitting in Altoona right now on flatcar TPDX190201. One F40 has had it's body work completed and it should depart west soon. I believe it's 1051 but I'm not sure.

In addition to the one unit heading west, 1025 just arrived at Holidaysburg. Sounds like NS CB10 had one F40 coming inbound to holdiaysburg and one heading outbound

1028 is being brought to Middleboro tomorrow on an extra out of Readville. Wonder if its the
next unit to head west?

The 1028 was rebuilt last summer, do you mean the 1058 by any chance?

The Middleboro extra has 1028 and 2038. 1028 has already been overhauled so it's not headed west.

The extra left 2038 for Mass Coastal to take to Hyannis.

The notice says 1028. Maybe it went to Area 52/Rochester for warranty work?

TPDX190201 (Flatcar with what I believe is either 1066, 1064, or 1051) made it back from CurryRail in Holidaysburg. Trace picks up in Erie earlier tonight. What work is left for Wabtec to do?

Next F40 headed from Holidaysburg to Erie should be on flatcar TPDX190598. As of yesterday, an F40 was loaded onto this car. Again, I'm unsure of the number.

Finally, it seems that progress is being made on the 3C program again.

No word on the next units out of Erie yet. They should come back in the following order:
1074, 1057, 1065, 1060
All 4 of these units have off of MBTA property for over a year now!

Updates to follow.

Another F40 body was seen on flatcar TPDX 190598 going west from CurryRail in Holidaysburg, PA on 67T. Look like it's in Conway yard right now waiting for something to take it west from there.
