ConnDOT Genesis Engines
By Pierce Haviland and Ron Yee

The newest engines in the Metro-North fleet are the ConnDOT Genesis engines, numbered 228-231. These engines are identical to the 27 silver and blue Genesis units with the exception of the New Haven Pain Scheme.

Old Meets New

An old F-10 stands in the way of Genesis unit 225. The F unit was an original F3, made in the 1940s, that was rebuilt by ICG and renamed F10. Four of these units gave a decade of reliable service to Metro-North despite their age.


It looks like the paint is still wet on the newest Genesis engine, the 231. It will be the last unit of this type to be built by GE for Metro-North for the forseeable future. Bye-bye FL9s.
