PC: Re: PC RS11 at Selkirk! (Well, sorta...)


7589 was never a PC unit under that number  but as PC 7664 (NH 1404). It was
originally of an NH series 1400-1414 that became PC 7660-7664. When CR came
PRSL also had the same amount of GP38's 2000-2014 and CR renumbered them in
the Ex-NH RS-11 slot of 7660-7664 on top of Ex-LV GP38AC 7556-7559 (LV
310-313) and renumbered the NH RS-11's back from 7585-7599 just before NYC
RS-11 7600-7607 (NYC 8000-8007).

Does IC still have six of the NH GP9's that MBTA traded to them for the
FP10's rebuilt from GMO F3's? Four are still on MNR as 410-413.
