Update for August 17, 2019

INSPECTIONS: Several locomotive inspections are being conducted by the KCC&E at both the Atlanta and Chicago shops. This is to ensure that the locomotives are safe and up to code for operation. If any locomotives fail their inspections, they will either have the issues repaired or, if the problems are severe enough, outright retired. These inspections will be conducted over the course of the next six months. The inspections will exclude all locomotives that were built new or rebuilt within the past three years.

STORAGE UPDATE: Around 25 of the previously-stored SD70ACe-T4s are presently at Progress Rail in Muncie, Indiana, getting fixes done. The last of the current 25 at Progress Rail, the KCC&E 5607, 5627, 5666, and 5694, were sent down to Muncie via Norfolk Southern train 19K, and were dropped off at Progress Rail via a local train. There are presently 61 SD70ACe-T4s out of service, including the units at Progress Rail.

MISHAP REPORT: On August 11, KCC&E train Z-CHPI struck a semi-truck in Elkhart, Indiana, severely injuring the driver. The truck driver was airlifted to the hospital, where he is presently recovering. As for the crew, both survived with only minor injuries, while the lead engine, ES44AC 829, suffered from severe damage and will be sent to Chicago for repairs.

I haven't done an update in a long time. It's about time I did.

Update for October 6, 2019

SD50u RETIREMENTS: Many more SD50u units have been retired, but these are going to remain on the property to be used as parts sources to keep the other SD50us running. The 12 SD50us being retired for use as parts sources are 3412, 3419, 3423-3425, 3426, 3437, 3439, 3440, 3444, 3459, 3463, 3466, 3481, 3487, 3491, and 3498. All units were either in Atlanta or Chicago at press time.

LOCOMOTIVE REACTIVATIONS: Several previously-stored locomotives have been reactivated. The units reactivated include 37 SD40-2s and 8 SD60s. A recent surge in general merchandise traffic on the KCC&E has prompted the railway to put these units back in service.

SD70MAC REBUILD PROGRAM: 25 SD70MACs are now billed for Progress Rail for rebuild as SD70MACe type locomotives. These units are KCC&E 1-25. They will be sent to Mayfield, Kentucky, where Progress Rail will rebuild them.
