Metra Rolling Stock Deliveries and Assignments

Recommended Posts

This topic will cover new equipment acquisitions in upcoming months and years, including the rest of the F59s, SD70MACHs, and whatever else is planned such as the 200 railcars and possible eight Tier 4 locomotives. It will also cover equipment sent for or recieved from rebuilds and overhauls.

Interestingly, there seems to be more of a priority on returning rebuilds to service rather than placing new (used) power into service. Either that or it's just varying between the BN and MD.

I know some stuff needs the "Metra" upgrade (or downgrade depending how you look at it). But lets face it, they cry shortage of power but sure are dragging getting the Amtrak F59s out and running. Some of the F40s are staggering and as predicted when they arrived, the MP36s shake rattle and roll. Fall behind on schedule and your chance of making it up is slim, very slim. I am speaking of the MD...don't know enough about the BN !
