Two F7's currently residing on the Southern Railroad of New Jersey at Winslow appear to be headed to the RBMN. They have been stenciled RBMN with numbers 250 and 251 and have had their damaged windows boarded up for transit. In addition, an ex-Susquehanna, nee PC / NH, RDC-1 has been similarly stenciled with car number 9167. The F7's will need a bit of TLC to bring them back to operating condition, I believe that the RDC is operable but will need cosmetic work at a minimum.  
 
It will be interesting to see what service these will be used for, possibly the Reading - Jim Thorpe service?

That sounds like good news.  I'm glad to hear that the equipment is heading somewhere where it can be cared for and utilized!

Bessemer & Lake Erie fans will be happy to know they are possibly being saved.  
 
 
Part of the set that work the Western Allegheny Div of the Bessemer and Lake Erie. These F units worked into the 1990s moving coal off the WARR to the B&LE main.
