Amtrak/ Norfolk Southern ITCS Pool

Unread postby Ypsi » Sun Apr 14, 2019 11:41 am

Stemming off of the recent ITCS discussion, I wanted to make a topic to keep track of the units that are now in the ITCS Pool. This includes Amtrak P42s as well as if any Norfolk Southern units have ITCS with it for AML operations. If anyone has additions, corrections, OOS units, or anything on what NS has for ITCS operations please feel free to add them!

Original P42 Pool:
26
27
28
29
30
31
32
33
34
35
36
37
38
126
127
128 (wrecked/scrapped)

Additional P42's:
56
59
61
62
63
64
66 (wrecked/ scrapped)
68
69

P32-8's:
518
519

NPCU's: (no longer working AML)
90200
90215
90218
90219
90222
90225

On the NS side, is it still just a small group of GP40-2s and GP60s?

You can add the 62 and 64 for the Amtrak engines

I believe the NS engines are (were) the 3065, 3066, 3067, 3068, 3069 (GP40-2's) and 7146, 7147, 7148, 7149, 7150 (GP60's)

Do we know which Chargers will be in the pool? Presumably it's all the ones that were being stored at Pueblo.

4626 and 4630 presumably, since they came over from Pueblo.
If the Conductor is in charge of the train, then why is he promoted to Engineer?

The P42 that handled train #365 into Battle Creek on April 12 was #64. The locomotive failed there (don't know what happened) and train #353 had to tow it into Chicago.

#64 leading, and #62 trailing on today's 365 (Blue Water).

Appears #62 is not on the list.

Here’s a question: why the sudden influx of IL P42s? If it’s supposed to be for the Charger release why not just keep the MI P42s until the Chargers were ready? Or were our original ones in such bad shape that they had to be taken OOS immediately?

The Ill. P42's have the updated ITCS in them. The Mich Line P42's that have been here should be gone by now.

That would explain why the 34 went west on the Southwest Chief a couple of day ago.
Plus the track in Illinois that needed them is currently suspended/in limbo/may never be turned on again.

Oh, that explains everything now. I will be on the lookout for the "new" P42's :lol:.

When NS was still in Kalamazoo, all of the above were ITCS equipped + the 3070.
