MORE NEW ACe UNITS: 20 more of the new SD70ACe units, 5806-5825, have been delivered throughout the month of February

LEASE RETURNS: 20 lease engines have been returned to their lessor. These units are four remaining NREX SD60s and all of the LTEX C40-8s. These units have been returned due to the new SD70ACe units coming online.

SERIOUS DERAILMENT ON THE PITTSBURGH SUB: On February 25th, 2018, a serious derailment occurred near Big Beaver, Pennsylvania, along the KCC&E Pittsburgh Subdivision. No locomotives were involved, but 32 freight cars derailed, some of which spilled hazmat onto the ground. A brief fire started as a result but was put out in less than an hour. Thankfully, nobody was injured or killed.
