Wow, nice catch on those R32 GEs. Quite lucky since there were only 10 of em!

Thanks! I wish I had more footage of the R32 GEs, but unfortunately I had much less opportunity to railfan back in those days. I do have some more stuff from the 2005-2008 era that I will get on youtube sooner or later.

Was that the only footage you have of the R32GEs?

Well no biggy. At least you got video of it. That's all that matters. That you got something instead of nothing. ;)

Yep this means there's some form of video documentation of the R32GE cars online for all to see.

Wow, I had almost forgotten about the GE rebuilds.  They were the closest thing we had to the original (pre-GOH) R-32s.  If any R-32 pair should have been preserved, it should have been a GE set....

There's a pair left at floyd bennet field used for police training purposes, so there is still a little bit of hope that we can eventually have an R32GE in the museum fleet eventually.
