PC: Nashville "PC" E units

I was wrong. NYC painted E units 4068 and 4080 at the Tennessee Central
Railway Museum are former NYC units. These privately owned units are now
running well; they had a few bugs when they first arrived in Nashville
because they had been stored. TC Musuem 5764 is a former PRR unit.

6902 at the Broadway Dinner Train is the former NYC 4084. It came to the
dinner train from the New Georgia Railroad to replace 5764 which went to
the Museum.

The four BN units are moving around. Nashville and Eastern is using them
for freight service.

Nashville now has eight E units, and has had ten in the last few years.
(Two units used on the Tennessee 200 train recently went west.)

On an unrelated note, the movie "Runaway Train" has quite a few technical
errors relating to the way MU'ed locomotives operate. The people on the
train can't get to the lead unit (I guess they can't figure out the door
on the front of the 2nd unit, an F) and are trying to stop the train. In
the movie (unlike real life) they cannot kill the consist without getting
to the front unit. In the movie, even the emergency fuel kill switch
doesn't work. Then again it may be a bad movie, but at least it is a bad
movie with trains.
