Re: PC: PC in the news

Rob:Those were a couple of the E8s I remember. Others were: 224(exL &N nee
SLSF),266,267,268, at least a couple former UP E-units. It is too bad Amtrak
did not keep at least some of these engines as spares to be used as needed and
equip them with HEP as backups for the F40s. My fist Amtrak ride, a round
tripper between Buffalo and Rochester was with 268 outbound, and from Central
Terminal, no less.Boy, did those E8s want to race. The GE Genesis engines are
not even as good as the F40s when it comes to accelleration either. I would
give anything to have the E8s back where they truly belong.
