Hmm I wonder what they will use for HEP on these beasts.

One thing about the Hi-Level design is there isn't any room for underslung equipment.
If in doubt, Notch it out!

Seems that things are at a stand still. What's up, can they still meet the start up deadline?

To close out this thread, yes they all got moved in time, yes the startup happened ok.
They are powered by HEP, which is currently housed in an old Railbox boxcar.
