Locomotive Information:

7401 - 7420 were originally Reading 3400 - 3419. They retained their Reading Green and Yellow paint scheme for some time - the black diamonds were given D&H logos and the yellow 3s in the engine number were changed to white 7s. Most/all were repainted all blue with yellow nose stripes. Currently owned by CSX and numbered in the 4300 series (7419 is CSX 4318, 7414 is CSX 4319). 7601 - 7620 were bought new from EMD - all painted in the lightning stripe scheme. Remained with Guilford in 1991, numbered 351 - 369 and lettered for the Boston & Maine. All have now been sold/leased to Union Pacific and have been numbered 2729 - 2748 - they left Guilford rails between 6 and 8 July 1997.
