Do you mean ISRR 3386?

Should be GEXR 3393.

MQT plans to retire 3389 and 3391 this year, would not be surprised if HESR also elects to retire 3390.

GEXR 3393 already arrived, CFE 3415 and CFE 3486.

The 3393 also had a stint on the Buffalo & Pittsburgh.

CFE 3415 and 3486 are former BNSF and NS SD40-2s.

I read somewhere that the 4 red railtex painted SD40-2S from IORY/OHCR were bound for Mexico. Any idea is that might be the plan for the 3 in Michigan as well?
