I saw 381 leading 382, CITX3032 and 384 westbound through Cloverdale this afternoon.

I was exploring around the recently updated imagery in Google Streetview, and it would appear that what remained of the Central Park Spur has been taken up within the past year (late 2015, early 2016). Like the Arbutus Line, it's just the gravel right-of-way and the rails embedded in crossings left now. I'm surprised it stayed in place as long as it did after being severed due to road construction in New West circa 1999 or 2000.

Looks like new power is coming to SRY in the form of MRL SD35 703. The news was posted recently on another forum. I guess this means the green CITX SD40-2 they have been leasing will be returned.  This will be an interesting unit to check out, it runs on a frame roughly the same length as a SD9, still has a EMD567 along with upgraded microprocessor control.  A baby SD compared to today's large six axle units at 60'8"and only a foot and a half bigger than a GP40-2 at 59'2". A little cut and paste history on this unit I dug up for those who are interested on it's history. Anybody know when it is scheduled to arrive?  
 
MRL SD35 number 703 was originally built as Atlantic Coast Line 1014, later Seaboard Coast Line 1914, etc, etc.
 
It was built and delivered with the Low Short Hood or "low nose". It is still that way. It was repainted by NREC in January 1989, when sold to MRL.
 
The low short hood was modified at CEECO in July 1995 at which time the headlight was moved up between the number boards and the "nose" was filled in.
 
Shortly thereafter still at CEECO MRL 703 got a rebuilt 16-567C prime mover, AR-10 generator, 26L brakes, and a Q-tron QES-1000 microprocessor.
