Mistake on my part - you're right B0000RT, it is 56xx, not 58. I need new glasses!

I was wrong, spotted a 51xx today

Last Friday when I rode past the shops there were a couple of strings of new cars out there. One set was lit up, looking like it was going out on the road. And yes the numbers are both 5800 and 5100's. :-)

I spotted 4 PA-5's moving within the yard at Harrison with what looked like a bunch of techs on board yesterday 7/15.

Saw a 4-car set of the PA-5's testing on the line from the CSX yard this morning. It was an A-B-B-A set....looks like the "A" cars were 56xx-series and the "B" cars are the 51xx-series. Four other cars were sitting outside the shops at Harrison as I saw passing by on PATH a while later....
