If #8096 is to return to Lansing, then I wonder if for whatever reason they didn't do it in Detroit, that they could intend to spin it in GR so that it's west-facing, since #5500 is already east-facing.

At least, last I knew 8096 was still east-facing. Despite it lead both L302 and L303, it was last part of L303 (September 24) and east-facing.

I'm wondering if the #8096 will be L301’s replacement engine? L301’s CSX #4384 had 2 traction motors (#3 & #5) cut out yesterday. The #5 traction motor was reported to have burnt up.

I had to google what railraod the PNLX is and had found it's the Precision Locomotive Leasing Company. Their #7471 is a former Western Maryland EMD SD35 engine still having the same number & colors as the WM on their web page. The #57 is the former MARC (Maryland Regional Commuter) EMD GP40WH-2 engine & still having the same MARC number & engine colors also shown on PNLX's web site.

There's a photo of the MARC #57 taken in Sept 1992 posted on rrpicturearchives.net that was taken in Odenton, Maryland on Amtrak's Northeast Corridor where at that time I was based with Amtrak.

Close. #7471 is an ex WM SD40. #57 has since been repainted into the Precision Locomotive orange/black scheme. Both units are going to Steam Railroading Institute in Owosso to power this year's North Pole Express.
