Notes:
 - 901, 903 prepped for operation in Australia at the Juniata Shops
 - 902, 904 prepped for operation in Australia at by Mid America Car
 - 901-904 would be repowered with 16-710G3 engines by Downer EDI Rail
 - 905-909 kept thier original TA22 main alternator and 1TB2830 traction motors
 - 901-909 have been equipped with shaft-driven air compressors by FMG as their original electric motor-driven compressors kept burning up motors.
 - FMG acquired another group of units (910-917) which were shipped as 6000hp 90MACs (from Mayfield) with the plan to repower them later.  As of 7/2019, all in this group
   are out of service waiting for their rebuild which may never come.

Work Done:
 - 901-904 overhauled and repainted for Fortescue Metals Group of Australia with appropriate modifiactions
 - 901-909 upgraded with ECP brakes
 - 905-909 repowered with 16-710G3 engines and repainted for Fortescue Metals Group of Australia with appropriate modifications for operation in Australia
