I have the feeling I know what I'm buying myself for Christmas this year...

So what are they using on the Danbury and Waterbury trains? They were still
using the FL9s when I was up there around this time last year. A Metro-North
mud missile just wouldn't look right crossing the Naugatuck River at Ansonia...
Hopefully many if not all of them will be preserved. I'd like to see Metro-
North donate most of them instead of scrap them--after all, after all these
years, they should be fully depreciated by now....
Any idea how much one of those would go for scrap value if Metro-North were
to sell them? I wonder if buying an FL9 would qualify for a home equity loan?
