Remarks & Notes 
Under Wire For The Last Time. Not long after midnight on June 7, 2024, former Amtrak AEM-7 917 arrived at The Danbury Railway Museum on Genesee & Wyoming Inc.'s Providence & Worcester Railroad Train CT-2. This brought an almost year long effort to a successful conclusion. This class of locomotive had worked on passenger trains in the Northeast on a daily basis for decades until being retired in June, 2016. Later, it was brought to Davisville, Rhode Island for storage. The final leg of the trip, on the overnight of June 6-7, 2024, brought AMTK 917 to the museum, where it will be cosmetically restored and is already on public display. At the museum, the AEM-7 joins a variety of other electric powered pieces of rail equipment, including FL-9s, M-2s, and the first mainline electric locomotive, New York Central S-1 100. CT-2 stops in the South Norwalk Station to change ends before heading up the Danbury Branch late on the night of June 6, 2024.
