Look for PHL 40 heading south in the next couple of days. Was on the outbound at Tacoma Locomotive yesterday. The new paint looks sharp. Moving DIT.

No, it's a new purchase, hence the PHL paint. In addition, Progress is supplying them with two additional PR30C's and a PR23B genset (PRLX 2006) as fill-in power during the fleet rebuild. I am told by PHL sources that the PR23 in particular has been very impressive.

PHL 20, sitting in Tacoma across from Progresive Rail as of 1pm today.:cool:

On a side note, MRL SD45-2's 355 and 346 are sitting 2 car lengths away.:rolleyes:

Out back of Progress on the south/west side of the old paint shop, there are a couple of Tacoma Rail GP20's. Has anybody noted the numbers of those units? I didn't have time to take them the other day, and now I'm back in Arizona. I ask because Tacoma Rail and Progress are working a project to repower three units, and I suspect those are the core units for the project. Precisely what is being done (direct repower, genset conversion, or something else) isn't known yet.

Thanks!
