all MN EMU's have full freight style braking when being towed, LIRR cars do not have that feature, just emergency brakes.

Amtrak train 49 experienced mechanical problems on track 1 at CP 19 last night (3/7). Engine 709's pistons were on the ground inside the engine room. HTS-6 rescued the equipment a few hours later and towed it into Harmon Yard. Amtrak sent engines to retrieve the equipment and bring it to Albany.

Amtrak Extra 615 heads east up the Northeast Corridor/New Haven Line with 4 Ex-NJT P40DC's in tow for Shore Line East. My plan was to chase all the way to New Haven Yard, but it was slightly tardy and being that I had work the same day, I had to settle with two spots. Because this is now SLE equipment, I'd thought I'd post here.

Reported in "Unofficial MNRR" group: 111 pulling a Maxi north from Harmon to Poughkeepsie. Would that be considered unusual? I would think that would be a p32 Gennie under normal circumstances.
