MP72/75 conversions on LIRR

Recommended Posts

Its known that the MP72/75 cars were converted to locomotive hauled cars with the GP38/MP15. Could it have been possible that some of those cars could have had their end windows and cabs retained for push pull service a'la NJ Transit Arrow1/Comet 1B cars?

Yes but the GP38-2's and MP15AC's didnt have HEP is reason why LIRR bought old ALCO and EMD F units and converted them into HEP cab cars.

I remember riding those cars when i was a child on an express from Babylon to Jamaica, then there was the connection to East NY. Guess there was no viable option for HEP from actual locomotive back then
