They have the 390 and 2 of the SD35s

They are in Perrinton now. I think running the power around the train?

Hi Rail in TC today, so thinking a TC run tomorrow day or night (if not tonight). Oddly, hi rail went all the way to the end in Williamsburg (they usually get off the rails at M-72 crossing just beyond Amerhart since GLC normally just does a flying switch there).
