LINQ question

I have a List object in c#.  I want to group by three fields in that list and test for a duplicate record.  In SQL, it would look like this:

select field1, field2, field3
from Table1
group by field1, field2, field3
having count(*) > 1

Is this possible to do in LINQ?

           where gr.Count() > 1
           select new { gr };

My example is VERY crude--don't read into the variable names, I merely wanted to demonstrate syntax.

I got it working, and I can see the value that it found, but how do I then mine that value out of "data"?  intelisense only brings up more predicate methods.

I can see everything in data2's method "Results View", but how do i access the method?

     var data2 = from f in myList
                        group f by new { f.TrpCarrierId, f.Mode, f.CarrierStatusCode }
                        into myGroup
                        where myGroup.Count() > 1
                        select new
                        {
                          myGroup.Key.TrpCarrierId,
                          myGroup.Key.Mode,
                          myGroup.Key.CarrierStatusCode,
                          MyCount = myGroup.Count()
                        };

I believe it would be something like:

foreach (var d in data2)
{
     string.Concat(d.TrpCarrierId, d.Mode);  // etc.
}
