771 and 772 returned to service yesterday, both on the same set too (the 1822 8 double set).

Amidst all the chaos, 753 and 777 will be headed out to Alstom, wasn't sure if this program was halted for the time being.

Hopefully, workers are receiving gloves and face masks and/or social distancing, with temperatures being tested when they arrive for work and being counseled to stay at home (with pay) if sick. And if they do have anybody test positive they either shut down or test everybody. This type of manufacturing is presumably considered "essential"

760 back into service Friday. Probably a lot tougher to track down with the reduced service and fewer trains, but we'll see (normally the rebuilds would get slapped onto one of the 8-car or 6-double sets so it would be fairly easy to find them).

774 back into service today. Down to 20 cars either being rebuilt or awaiting rebuild, with 10 non-rebuilds still in operation.

Also means we have nothing down in Delaware for the first time in quite a long time.

770 also back in service today.
