Work locomotive replacements

Recommended Posts

How often are subway work locomotives replaced? Some look like they haven't been replaced in a long time. Is this a sign of reliability within the locomotive fleet?

The work locos currently in service will likely be replaced after the next order of rev cars are delivered. They are reliable, but they fail to meet modern emissions requirements, so they will be taken out of service, restored & preserved/scrapped.
