12-12-2019 NS L69 may be bringing 5 NS DC to AC conversion SD70Acc to New Haven. I saw NS 1841-1840-1836-1839-1842 sitting in Muncie East yards. L 82 pulled them from PRMC.

Last I knew, L69 doesn't go all the way into East Wayne anymore. Yoder is about as far North as the Muncie-based crews get regularly. Maybe it will be a "special trip."

Yard jobs at Muncie East yards have been going to Vernon siding and sitting out/picking up cars for Elk hart. Possibly they went that way by 142 or 174..

197 makes a pick-up most days in Muncie. Is there a northbound equivalent that could have dropped them off? Too bad 313 still doesn't operate.

Here is the 1st SD70ACC built 23M at mp 372 at 4:55 with NS 1800 leading and 9551 DIC taken at Corunna IN 12/26 Originally built in 1994 as EMD SD70 #2537, 1800 was rebuilt by Progress Rail’s facility in Muncie, Indiana, to include a new safety cab and electrical upgrades to provide AC traction. The yellow color represents Progress Rail's parent company, Caterpillar.
