Someday that might happen. I would love to get some too since they ran not to far from where I live.

I remember the MEC ones running through Lawrence and Andover after the Guilford merger and buyout, but they were in horrible shape after Fink and co. got through with them a short time later. I saw a lot them blowing smoke as bad as the old ALCO Centuries inherited from their D&H merger/fiasco.

A bit before Guilford got their mitts on the MEC, I remember seeing them run through the Notch on the Mountain Division pulling good sized freights east and west to and from St. Johnsbury. Included in those trains were those famous Rock Island hoppers still wearing The Rock on them.
