    Something you don't see everyday. Two MP15AC locomotives hauling four M7A cars on the approach to the Hell Gate bridge. Happens on Thursdays, but I've seen the time vary from a quarter to 10 to almost 12. This is being done to install PTC on the M7A.





    Plus ACS-64 #662 being hauled after becoming disabled earlier in the day.

    That could very much explain the 2-4 car sets of MNRR cars I see at the LIRR shop.
