What is MNRR looking at going forward for passenger coaches, either EMU or push-pull. Is there a timeline for acquisition?

I know multi-levels have been discussed, and we've discussed specifically CtDOT: https://railroad.net/viewtopic.php?f=67&t=168928

According to various posts, MNRR will NOT exercise their option on M9 cars, choosing instead to rehab M-3a's:M9 Cars Design Delivery and Acceptance and M3a Rehab Discussion and Status

Another thread indicates that CtDOT/MNRR are only getting an additional 66 M8 cars, not the full 94 under options: Status and Delivery of Additional M8 Cars

Mod Note: I moved the locomotive talk to the "New Locos" thread that was located on the forum's page 1, with some years back history about the combined Dual Mode RFI procurement information.
