Was it being used as a control car or just a car within the set? Haven't seen it on GPS in months.

Also, the 771, 772, and 774 have been sent out to Alstom, with the 755 returning.

738 and 754 both returned to service today. The original 50 BTCs have now all been rebuilt and are back in service.

more than likely 1706 is blind on a set. Haven't seen which set it was though.

760 and 770 are on their way out to New York next. Seems like they've really picked up the pace of sending more cars out the last several months?

755 returned to service this week. Quick rebuild, only went out this past March I think.

757 and 767 have now rejoined service. 757 was on the 1723 7-double set, 767 on the 1816 4 double/1 flat set.

769 also back in service as of yesterday.

Also, some of these cars are coming back quickly this year. I imagine the BTCs are quicker to rebuild than the control cars, which are all rebuilt at this point? Feels like they're coming home after 6 months as opposed to up to a year.

781 back in service now, haven't tracked it down on a set yet.

762 will be the next car going out to Alstom. I believe this is the car that is completely blue and has the "No brainer" decal on it, I imagine this car will go back to looking normal?
