        Is this unit being used because they have nothing else that is operational ?

Believe PRLX 4685 was in Alamosa Shop getting some maintenance early October 2019.  PRLX 4687 was working the Walsenburg, Colorado, job that morning.

Thanks very much for showing they still have revenue traffic.  They do not look like a cars of the type they are storing.  I see there are cars in storage on SG tracks in Antonito. I guess the wye is open so they can turn this F unit for the return run. Did you photograph the large switching operation at Antonito?

We were down this way same day. Didnt see either PRLX units, but if one was in shop it wasn't visible. 5 of the ex NJT Units sitting, dead, across street by station. Ben

The ex-New Jersey Transit (NJT) units lease is up-all five units stored for now.

I am assuming the crews are draining the air boxes on the locomotive. E-units don't like slow operations. We found that out at OERM.
