Few questions:

Why were the 1066's repairs contracted out, while 1074 is having its PM replaced in house?

Also, where is 1074's new PM coming from? Is it a new 645, or is there another donor unit? (1016 possibly?)

The T's passenger locomotives all use 645 prime movers. Only the 904 has a 567.

I knew 645, but had a moment there and typed 567... Fixed now.

The 1016's prime mover is just something we should all forget about(donor-wise) because that prime mover is as dead as the loco itself. In fact, the prime mover from the 1016 is the dead one from 1010 that was changed out a couple years back when 1016 was officially retired!

Where do you get it still has it's grills? The photos I have show it not having them. It's repainted and has a camera installed next to the engineer side number board.
