What's new on the A&M these days?
 
Last I heard they had a C424 (#01) in service and possibly another to follow.  Recently I heard a rumor of Canadian M420s going there.
 
Does anyone have the scoop?
 
Also, does Casey Shepherd (sp?), A&M's cmo, post here, as he does at railroad.net's forum?

The rumor of M420's going to the A&M is fact. 3 MLW M420's and 1 BBD HR412 from the Ohio Central were delivered to the A&M about a little over a month ago. The units are already in service. A friend of mine was lucky enough to catch one of the units along with 4 C420's on the Monnet Turn during the last week of June.

Don't know what numbers will be assigned to the new units, they are currently in service with the numbers and paint they had on the Ohio Central.

Guys,  
I am really interested in modeling the Arkansas and Missouri.  Do y'all know of a good source to get pictures of these trains?  I have been googling and have found some good ones but would like some that have a little more detail.

The A.M. M-420s are numbered in the 70's series. I have see most of these units with the new numbers and half new paint. Barry

I have reports that say the railroad is scrapping C420# 332 and M420 74 for parts.
