I was overwhelmed by fumes form the MBB blue room Thanks for the correction.Diverging Route wrote: ↑Wed Nov 20, 2019 8:28 pm As I recall MBB #517 had 2x3 seats from a Bombardier. There was at least one other too. They do fit.Back in 2009, you said they were 2x2, which is what I remember them being: viewtopic.php?f=65&t=61012&start=15#p663677

All are headed to Kinkisharo International in New Jersey for overhaul (according to the N.E. Transit list). Cars are Coaches 514,518,519,525,529,531 and Control Cars 1500,1502,1519 & 1523. Someone said they were on CSX B726-24 out of Middleboro.I'm guessing they will head west to Albany and then down the river? I don't think via NHV and Hell Gate are even in the cards, right?
