7525, 7529 to GA. 

Did a few trips on 7523 on its first day of service and I must say overall I am impressed with this batch of XD40’s. From the suspension, to the amazing take-off right down to the feel of it. It’s much more solid than the previous 7000’s, and much faster.

As of right now, the ONLY XD’s that can keep up with the new ones are 4818-4820 and 4824. I will discuss the new LBSS and what’s so special about the ones mentioned above in detail in the Fleet & Depots thread.

Those will probably return to LG at the end of the day.

Yeah, to back up TJ Trainman, they were returned by 3:30 pm. 214 went on to do the q66 after the q72 IIRC, not sure what 220 did.

220 was on the Q23 during the latter part of the day

You missed CHA in the delivery order. I'm guessing that it will be after YUK.

He's talking about delivery order. CH is either 3rd or 5th. I have to double check.
