RE: (erielack) slightly off topic

Actually, there were TWO FL9's wearing NYC paint - 2012 and 2013 IIRC,
though one was retired shortly afterward and donated to the Danbury
Railroad Museum.  The other is still in service.  As for New Haven,
something like 6 or 8 of them were done, with some still running.  The
third rail gear no longer works and the shoe beams and shoes were removed
several years ago; they run only on shuttle trains at the outer ends of
the Harlem line and on the New Canaan, Danbury and Waterbury branches.
