Remarks & Notes 
"CTrail Water World at Stamford" Metro North's "Water World 1" holds on Track 5 at the Stamford Transportation Center with CDOT BL20GHM 125 leading. "Water World" is Metro North's rail washer tasked with spraying leaf residue off the rails throughout the electrified territory, mainly the Harlem & New Haven Lines. This Water World set consists of a Cab Car, Sprayer Car (old caboose), 2 water tanks and a BL20GHM for power. The 125 was a BL20GH, originally built by Brookville Equipment Corporation in 2008. After years of service, Metro North & CDOT contracted Motive Power Industries (MPI) to rebuild the BL20GHs starting with the 125. This rebuild included the swapping out MTU-Detroit Diesel 12V4000 for a more reliable Cummins prime mover and upgrading several other components on the engine. For the CDOT owned engines the rebuild also called for repainting the locomotives in CDOT's new "CTrail" scheme.
