Why did it take nearly two months to overhaul that locomotive?

It actually was there a little over three months which is just slightly longer than typical for Genesis to be painted(no overhaul). 701 also needed a nose job, which you can see for yourself as to why if you search for pictures of it from earlier this year.

707 has been repainted. This makes four of eighteen P32 now with Phase III Empire. 22% of the way there towards all being repainted.

I think that is all NYS paid for last fiscal year. I'm not sure how many they intend to repaint this year although I heard the number two being floated.

 

I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Here's a video that was uploaded today by YouTube user Matthew Mosier showing AMTK 707 on Amtrak #48.

 

 

And here's a before shot showing 707 back on August 13 by Scott O'Dell.

Maybe they'll actually fix/overhaul them unless they want them to look good as they await a tow.

AFAIK NY spent some money to rebuild MNRR P32s. Since they fund almost all of the trains Amtrak uses them on, is this something they are considering, or will they just eventually fund new DMs for LIRR, MNRR and Amtrak down the road?

This video was uploaded today by the Wide World of Trains YouTube channel showing AMTK 711 on the Lake Shore Limited in Dunkirk, New York.

 

 

For comparison, this is what it looked like back in September in this video by Mr RailFanner.
