NJ Transit's First new Switcher on the way soon!

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

 

I have just heard that very soon the first of the NJT GP40FH-2's from 4130-4134 that were sent out to be rebuilt will be coming back as a new switcher to replace the SW1500 locomotives.

Will they be primary GP40FH-2 switchers only or will they perform mixed duties?

 

Will they receive a special number or letter to designate them?

Here is what I know so far.

 

1. They will come back looking with the Green Goat Switcher appearance and WILL NOT be in the form of GP40FH-2's. They WILL NOT have the green goat engines.

 

2. They might be numbered in sequience with the MOW GP40-2 locomotive 4300 series but of course that an be changed at any time.

 

3. They most likely will Wander the system like the SW1500's did.

I'm a little confused by what you mean there.

Hello,

 

Let's how can I explain this easier. NJ Transit GP40FH-2 Locomotives #4130-4134 will not be coming back as GP40FH-2 locomotives at all. The locomotives will return with as a totally different locomotive.

 

The locomotives that they will look like are similar to the new Green Goat switcher locomotives built by Railpower Technologies but have a normal diesel engine and will not be hybrid.

 

 

Does this help?

 

Eric
