If the H&F is interested, we still have 15 B40-9s for sale. They are of working condition, just rusted.

Two B40-8s have been purchased from the Carolina Southern. These will work on the Gaithersburg Line hauling freight between the M&N interchange in G-burg and Carroll Yard in frederick. The units will be numbered 10 and 11. #10 will wear our signature Green and Yellow while 11 will wear solid green with yellow ends like our GenSets. they will also feature dummy trolley poles to complete the overhead electrical circuit to trigger signals. The poles are not connected to the traction motors.

"Oh no, #1 to dispatch."
"Go ahead 1."
"We slipped off the wire."
"Again? That's twice this week."
"Yeah, need to reset the signals."
"Ok, give me a minute."
10 min later.
"1 i have everything reset. Are you hot?"
"Umm...hold on, the circuit relay flipped on us."
"There we go, we got juice."
"Copy 1, actually, If you can make Catoctin Furnace without slipping off, I will replace power with #10. #11 will follow behind to pick you up."
"Alright, we'll do that, Motor 1 out."
