They are still overhauling them. Just moving them to their new place from what I'm reading here. We will see if 1035 makes it back the netransit will list it as testing if it does. Anyone know what's going on with 1031 as far as testing goes? And why hasn't 1061 officially enter revenue service from massdot work on the cape main area?

So 1061 is being used on the other end of the test train for now since all the control trailer coaches have been rebuilt?

Two pictures tonight on the Idaho Railfans Facebook page. One is the
1035 departing on the rear of a BVRR freight for Nampa. The other is
the backshop at MPI/Boise of an unidentified unit down to a shell.
This is either the 1060 or 1065.

1035 has been interchanged from up to csx in chicago. should be on Q564. no clue why it’s on 564 bound for new castle pa but that’s how they’re doing it i guess.

Robert Jenkins shot pictures near Gooding, Idaho, of two MBTA F40PH-2C’s under wraps en route on the UP from Boise to Erie.

The pictures are on this public Facebook post (no login required):

Just saw that too. Marked MBTA 13 & 14. They should be the 1060 and 1065 (don't know which is which though). This means the 1035 is the last unit completed in Idaho. Speaking of which, where is it? Lost on CSX? Was on Q564 last I knew (and before my contact lost his tracing privileges).

Apparently the 1035 was sent to Erie, so not completely finished at Boise?

1025 and 1026 are the next locos headed out.

When did the 1026 get to Middleboro? I know the 1025 went down there on an
extra January 3rd.
